This is the 7th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc made on the estate. The grapes come from two cooler-climate coastal vineyard sites especially chosen for their ability to produce world-class Sauvignon Blanc. We hand-harvested the grapes into small lug boxes and transported them in a refrigerated truck to the farm in Constantia, where they were cooled further in a specialised cooling room to 5ºC. The following morning the bunches were de-stemmed and gently pressed, recovering about 70%. The juice settled overnight in a stainless steel tank, after which only the premium clear juice was racked off and inoculated with a cultured yeast strain. The fermentation temperatures were kept low around 14C. After fermentation, the wine remained on the lees to give it further complexity for 6 months.
