Brampton Sauvignon Blanc 2014

This Sauvignon Blanc displays a fairly unique array of flavours. The initial impression is subtle yet extremely focussed with prominent pear, passion fruit, yellow peach and pineapple fruit aromas that develop further on the palate to a crisp clean finish packed with freshness and zing.

Brilliant for social drinking or with anything from fresh summer salads to pan-fried line fish and savoury Mediterranean pastas.

Top 10 Sauvignon Blanc in South Africa 2014

ageing : Best enjoyed in the freshness of youth or within 2 years of vintage

A burst of detailed tropical pineapple, litchi and passion fruit vitality perfectly balanced by an animated natural acidity and a riveting finish.

in the vineyard : Stellenbosch, Simonsberg-Paarl, Durbanville

about the harvest: All grapes were hand-picked in the morning to ensure that the grapes arrive before the heat of the day diminishes the fruit aromas. Harvested in February.

in the cellar : Only the free-run juice was used further ensuring freshness and bright fruit flavours. The clean juice is then cold fermented (12° - 14° C) with different yeast strains for different terroir parcels. After fermentation the wines are left on the gross lees for a further two months to add richness and fullness to the wine.
