Sauvignon Blanc
South Africa
Walker Bay
Bottle size
750 mL

Its attractive and racy character is toned with nuances of kiwi and citrus, elevated by hints of gunflint, a fresh minerality and great
length to conclude. Pungent tropical aromas lingers on the palate with a persistent and mouth watering acidity.

Winemaking Notes

Harvested at optimal ripeness, the grapes were destemmed and skin contact allowed for a few hours. The wine was cold fermented with reductive processing in both stainless steel tanks and barrels. It was left on its lees for 120 days after fermentation and stirred regularly to encourage complexity.

Growing Conditions

Doused with all the privileges of a cool climate, Walker Bay boasts some of the most sought-after Sauvignon Blanc vineyards. Nudged by the Bot River Lagoon with vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, the vineyards enjoy cool daytime temperatures. A beneficial diurnal range aids in even ripening and complexity. These factors assist in the development of delicate fruit, fine tannin structures and bright acidities. Maritime winds encourage healthy vines.
