Asara’s Speciality range is an eclectic collection of wines that represent a twist on regional specialities. Niche and unique, the range reects the quality of an estate whose vinous history dates back to 1691.

in the vineyard : Produced from a single vineyard block grown at altitude (190m) on an east-facing slope. Limited sunshine exposure and cooler climes contribute elegance to the wine; the soil type, Tukulu, retaining irrigation and adding acidity. Each vine is picked back to a single bunch for concentration of flavour. The grapes are dried on mats for 2 - 3 weeks and turned minimally, caramelizing flavours on the sun-exposed side, the other conserving acidity. Average yield is 6 tons per hectare, 1.1 tons being used for the Sun Dried Sauvignon Blanc.

about the harvest: Average yield is 6 tons per hectare, 1.1 tons being used for the Sun Dried Sauvignon Blanc.

in the cellar : The grapes are whole-bunch pressed and the juice is fermented in barrel. The wine is immediately racked from the lees to retain fruit freshness and acidity.
