in the vineyard : The 2013 vintage will be remembered as a very dry year with the lowest rainfall logged in our records since 1976; 33% below our long term average. While yields were slightly lower than in 2012, cooler conditions resulted in better quality and more concentrated fruit. Despite the drought, the cool growing season resulted in good levels of acidity and the concentration of the fruit was better than during the warm 2012 vintage. The Sauvignon blanc isa prime example and the young wines all show beautiful, crisp green pepper and gooseberry flavours.

about the harvest: The 2013 harvest started little later than usual on 18 January and ended 87 days later on 13 April.

in the cellar : A dash of Semillon was first added to this Sauvignon Blanc in 2001, following the style of the famous white Bordeaux wines. It is the sister wine of the well known Simonsig Adelberg Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot red blend.
