in the vineyard : Thanks to our ongoing relationship with our dedicated team of grape growers, we were again able to source amazing quality Sauvignon Blanc grapes in addition to our very own Mulderbosch “home block”.

about the harvest: Picking decisions centred around ensuring grapes were harvested with both high acidity and optimal flavour ripeness, difficult in a year such as 2016 due to the very hot, dry
and therefore heat-stressed conditions.

in the cellar : We managed to schedule our picking to almost perfection, and vinification was a simple affair of pressing, settling and fermenting the juice in either stainless steel tanks, or
in ‘neutral’ French oak barrels of 500L which accounts for 12% of the 2016 blend.
