Winemakers’ comments

Our Sauvignon Blanc is generous in style with an abundance of ripe granadilla, green fig and grapefruit aromas. The palate is rich and opulent, layered with ripe tropical fruit and underlining minerality, typical of the Banghoek Valley. The wine is gently structured with the acid providing balance and length.

Vinification

Due to the steep incline and soil variations of the Sauvignon Blanc block, harvesting commenced in thee stages at different Ballings and pH’s. The grapes were hand picked in small bins and stored in a coldroom for 3 days before crushing and destemming began. The free run juice was inoculated with cultivated yeast cultures and fermentation commenced in stainless steel tanks.

*Minimum orders of 6 bottles (one case) are required.
