Groote Post Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Who says Sauvignon Blanc is all about acidity? Ideal growing conditions have resulted in a superbly balanced wine, displaying characteristic freshly-mown grass on the nose and rich, luscious white peach flavours on the palate. Depth, length and intensity from a standout vintage.

about the harvest: 
The grapes were harvested in three stages between 21° and 23° Balling. The grapes harvested in the morning went directly to the sorting table and the afternoon harvested grapes spent the night in a refrigerated container.

in the cellar : 
The grapes were de-stemmed before crushing and had skin contact for 6 - 12 hours. The juice was settled for 2 - 3 days, inoculated with cultured yeast, fermented at 13° - 16° C for 12 - 14 days and had lees contact for 3 months without stirring.

The wine was filtered and bottled in August 2009.
