What about the grapes? 94% Sauvignon Blanc, 6% Semillon
And the vineyards (terroir): The Sauvignon Blanc vineyards are planted on South facing slopes with altitudes varying from 300 – 350m above sea level. These vineyards are the most elevated position on Zevenwacht facing False Bay, deriving full benefit from the cool sea breeze during the ripening stages. Pungency and aromatic concentration are the hallmark of a fine Sauvignon Blanc and there is no shortage of these characteristics on the lofty southern slopes of the Bottelary Hills. Grapes were picked at various stages of ripening to provide us a broader spectrum of flavours to work with at blending. A small percentage of Semillon was used as a blending partner that adds weight to the palate.
How was it made: The grapes were given up to 6hrs of skin contact to allow for flavour extraction from the skins before pressing. The juice was handled reductively and cold fermented to protect the delicate thiol characteristics of the grape variety. 5 Months lees contact was given to add mid-palate weight to the blend.
Should this wine age / mature: Best within 2-3 years
