Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc 2002

The grapes have been sourced from two vineyards in the Walker Bay (representing 45% of the total “blend”) and one in the Villiersdorp area. Each vineyard adds its own dimension to the final wine and the blend was carefully constructed with the objective of creating an aromatic South African styled Sauvignon blanc – somewhere between the overt fruit of the New World style and the tight, minerally, restrained styles of the Loire. Ripeness and palate complexity characterise our Southern Right Sauvignon blanc and in addition the 2000 vintage shows lifted fruit and a tight acid line on the palate.

in the cellar : Counter-intuitively, the 2000 vintage was not as hot in the Walker Bay region as was first feared (which would have been problematic for the production of intensely aromatic Sauvignon blanc). We experience our coolest October, February and March, and our second coolest November and January since 1993. This together with one of the driest harvests yet experienced, contributed to supremely healthy fruit reaching the cellar. The grapes were ripe with excellent flavours and a good line of acid.
