"A really serious expression of Sauvignon Blanc from Hannes Storm that is loaded with quince, tropical yellow fruits, gooseberry and a hint of green mango peel. Creamy and mineral with super concentration – the New World answer to Sancerre." 94 pts, Decanter

One of the most exciting boutique South African producers we have come across in a while is Hannes Storm from the aptly named Hemel-en-Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley. Wild Air is a brilliant, zippy, concentrated Sauvignon with good textural depth to match its freshness – close your eyes and you could be drinking a ripe vintage Sancerre. Created in the beautiful Hemel-en-Aarde - or heaven on earth - the wine is a collaboration between Storm wines and Ben Henshaw, a UK based importer of esoteric wines from across the world. Made from older vines, it's a wine made as naturally as possible with spontaneous yeasts and was largely fermented in large old oak barrels which lends a beautiful rounded texture to compliment the vibrant citrus and tropical Sauvignon Blanc notes.
