Cellar Every process from picking to bottling was done super reductive with dry ice being added in the bins in the vineyard already. After destemming and crushing we gave at least 24hours skin contact. Only the free run juice was settled for 1 day and then racked to the fermentation vessel. It was inoculated with selected yeast strain and fermentation took place at 13°C. The wine spent 7 months on the primary lees before being blended and bottled.
Harvest The grapes were picked very early in the morning.
The harvest was 7 days earlier than normal with lower sugar levels and thus alcohol.
Vineyard A vintage that will be remembered. 2019 was a very cool vintage and with sufficient winter rain it turned out to be a near perfect vintage for Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was produced from selected dryland vineyards in Stellenbosch (False Bay), Durbanville and Darling. Canopy management involved an early suckering action and breaking leaves in the bunch zone to get sufficient sunlight on the bunches at an early stage.
