Groote Post Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Gooseberries are the standout fruit of this vintage. Ripe figs and granadilla abound on the nose and palate. This vintage is fruit driven with a vibrant acidity and a hint of grass on the
finish.

Soil: Hutton & Oakleaf
Trellising: 5 wire Perold
Elevation: 280m

about the harvest: The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard bare vigorous growth so canopy management with the breaking out of side shoots and tipping the vertical shoots is crucial. This vintage produced a big crop so we started picking earlier and this gave us a wide spectrum of flavours from green to ripe.

Yield: 10 t/ha

in the cellar : The challenge in the cellar is to capture the full potential of each batch of grapes delivered. After sorting, destemming and crushing, 50% of the grapes had skin contact. The best free run juice made up the components of this wine. The wine had lees contact for 2 months.
