Dry Sauvignon Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) (Chardonnay) Unwooded any vintage
Four wires extended trellised vines grafted on predominantly Richer 110. Planted on deep red and yellow Karoo-soil. Vines are on average about 10 years old and well balanced on growth and yield. Controlled irrigation was given.
Grapes were harvested in the morning. SO2 were added during picking to preserve flavour and prevent oxidation. Grapes were crushed and mash-cooled before draining. Free run juice was settled overnight. Clear juice was inoculated with selected yeast to initiate fermentation. After a period of cold fermentation and a short lees contact period, the wine was racked and prepared for bottling.
The wine has a bright yellow/green colour complex flavour of butterscotch with a characteristic hint of citrus contribute to the full-ness and freshness of this wine.
