in the cellar : The grapes were sources from selected vineyards in the Walker Bay area. The grapes were picked at optimal ripeness to ensure the freshness that Sauvignon is renowned for. The grapes were harvested at night and stored in a cool room until being sorted, crushed and pressed the following day. Lees rubbing of 4 days
was done at 3°C to extract the delicate fruit flavours. The juice was racked and inoculated with yeast and cold fermented in tank until dry. The wine was aged on the lees for 3 months before racking and sulphuring to ensure a silky aftertaste. Another 2 months of lees aging was done prior to bottling.
