Description
BlendPercent 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Cellar Destemmed and 6-hour skin contact before pressing settling. The settled juice was fermented in 500 L French oak barrel. Natural wild yeast fermentation took 3 months to ferment to off-dry and another 3 months maturation before bottling.
Harvest The Sauvignon blanc grapes are hand harvested in the very early hours of the cool morning.
Variety Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard Elgin is South Africa’s coolest wine growing area, situated 12 - 20 km from the sea, with mean February (ripening stage) temperatures of 19-20 °C. Situated at 200 - 300 m altitude and surrounded by Table Mountain sandstone mountains at heights of about 500 - 1000m, sheltering the area from the often extremely strong southeasterly winds in summer makes our farm ideal for Sauvignon Blanc.
This vineyard has deep Sandstone soils which contributes to the flinty minerality in the wine which is also a characteristic of cool climate Sauvignon blanc.
