The wine shows green fig, gooseberries, quava, cut grass, and most importantly a core of minerally-flinty flavours. The taste is full and long.

ageing : Can be enjoyed now, but will be great in 12-24 months.

in the vineyard : Unwooded Sauvignon Blanc from the single Schaapenberg Vineyard. The vineyards are on the South West facing slopes on the Schaapenberg and facing the nearby False Bay coastline. The soils are Clovelly and decomposed granites. No irrigation.

in the cellar : After destemming/crushing the juice is left on the skins for 18 hours at 8ºC. This is allowed by a light pressing and settling at low temperatures for 8 days. The "clean" juice is then fermented with Vin 7 for 21 days at 14ºC. No lees contact is allowed.
