in the vineyard : Benguela Cove’s Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is a racy yet elegant beauty that seduces from the start. And what a start this is! Described as “easy-drinking but superior, a serious contender”, this white wine shows off her mettle with a range of fruity tropical flavours and complex notes of citrus and mineral. This wine’s unique profile can be traced to its special terroir.

In the Vineyard
Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is located in an Eden-like setting. Its toes dip into the shallows of the Atlantic Ocean while the Botriver Lagoon straddles one side of the estate. At night cool maritime winds caress the vineyards, by day the temperature is cooled down by the close proximity of the cold Atlantic Ocean. The cool climate, use of covered crops, and the direction in which the vines face help the grapes to ripen slowly. The grapes were harvested in middle and late February. They were harvested by hand and bunch selected.

in the cellar : The Sauvignon Blanc 2014 was cold-fermented in a reductive style in stainless steel tanks, with a specially selected yeast. The latter was based on the location of the vineyard and the flavours of the fruit prior to the harvest. After completion of fermentation, the wine was battonaged fortnightly until a month before bottling.
