Sauvignon Blanc 2014 (375ml & 750ml)

The vineyards

The grapes came from trellised vines, planted in 1983, in weathered granite soils. These North and South facing vineyards are located 310 meters above sea level.

The winemaking

One specific block was hand harvested in the early hours of 19 February 2014. The grapes were picked at 23°Balling, destemmed and the juice was in contact with the skins for 4 hours. Only free run juice was used and inoculated with a specific yeast strain. The wine fermented between 14°C and 17°C until dryness. Maturation took place on the lees for 2 months. After 2 months the wine was stabilized and bottled.

Winemaker’s Comments

The wine is light green in colour with aromas of winter melon, green pepper and gooseberry. On the palate the wine is fresh with a mixture of tropical fruit flavours. This wine will compliment seafood and salads.
