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

about the harvest: 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.

in the cellar : The grapes were lightly crushed. 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.
