Diemersdal Winter Ferment Sauvignon Blanc 2021

A new world style of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine has intense aromas of gooseberries, tropical fruit and sweet-grapefruit with a core of minerality. The excellent natural acidity creates balance to the concentrated, rich mouth-filling texture.

Full flavoured seafood dishes and creamy soup or blackened, spicy pan-fried fish.

Diemersdal’s reputation for pushing the boundaries with Sauvignon Blanc is expressed in this innovative wine style. After harvest, the juice for this wine was frozen at -20˚C and kept in this state for five months. It was then thawed and fermented in the heart of the Cape winter, producing a uniquely tropical style of Sauvignon Blanc totally unique for South Africa.

in the vineyard : 

Gentle slopes exposed to the micro-climate of the Atlantic Ocean results in the vineyards being inßuenced by the cool air-flows and morning mists so typical of a maritime climate. In summer a firm south-easter wind fans the vines ensuring temperate and sunny ripening conditions. Along with dryland farming on soils of decomposed granite with a high clay content, the vines offer intensely flavoured fruit, resulting in wines of elegance, character and structure.

about the harvest: Night harvested at 23B

in the cellar : 

Grapes were crushed and destemmed - reductively. Skin contact for 3 hours, pressed and settled for 48 hours. The fermentation of this wine was postponed for 5 months before inoculated with CKS yeast. 2 weeks alcoholic fermentation temperature controlled at 14-16oC and was bottled soon thereafter.
