Vintage 2019
Tim Atkin Report 2019 - 90 Points

Sauvignon Blanc is arguably our least known wine but surprises us by being our most successful label in terms of volume sales; and is certainly South Africa’s best performing white wine. Our geographic location, lying within five kilometers of the cool Atlantic Ocean, offers the most ideal temperature zone of the Cape. Added to this, the heavy shale clay soil that typifies the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley lends an inviting tropical tone to the flavour profile of this vintage.

in the vineyard : Spring 2019 saw ideal weather conditions during flower and fruit set, heightening expectations for the upcoming vintage. However, our hopes were soon challenged by the atypical and unstable weather presented early in the New Year.

about the harvest: Fortunately, dry conditions set in as soon as harvest commenced, with the crop remaining healthy. Volumes recovered slightly from the light 2019 vintage and all-round, unexpectedly positive, fruit-quality was delivered to the cellar.

in the cellar : The majority of vines contributing to this wine was planted 25 years ago, laying a solid foundation of fruit complexity whilst ripening a balanced crop. The benefit of long-cane Guyot pruning in retaining bud fertility is especially significant in these mature vineyards. Picking is done manually and restricted to the cooler morning hours. As soon as the grapes are delivered to the cellar, they are crushed, destemmed and lightly pressed. Following a long, cool fermentation, textural development is encouraged by a significant period of maturation on lees (sur lie).
