ageing : Drinking well now, but will gain in intricacy with bottle maturation.

in the vineyard : 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit picked at optimum fruit intensity from vineyards in the prime Stellenbosch area. The grapes were hand picked in the early morning to ensure coolness, and then lightly crushed.

in the cellar : Only the free-run juice was used, and reductive winemaking techniques protected the fresh fruit flavours. The must was then cool fermented with a cultured yeast strain. After fermentation the wine was stabilised and given a soft filtration, to ensure retention of the characteristic Sauvignon Blanc fruit, prior to bottling.
