Wild Air | Wild Air

Wild Air is a collaboration between Indigo’s own Ben Henshaw and Storm Wines. The fruit comes from the same vineyard as the Moya’s Pinot Noir: a small section of 20-year-old Sauvignon Blanc vines, quite unusual for the region.  Inspired by the more restrained, textural styles of Sauvignon Blanc rarely made in South Africa, this is an outstanding wine, and only 1500 bottles made!
