Steenberg Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Steenberg Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The Black Swan 2014 is a light golden colour and displays aromas of white citrus blossom, lime,sweet lemon peel, melon, nettles and minerality on the nose - typical of Steenberg’s terroir. Due to extended lees contact, this wine is voluptuous on the palate and tempered by a fresh acidity that lingers.

in the cellar : The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of the top three Sauvignon Blanc vineyards on Steenberg and is a selection of the best fruit from the vintage. The grapes were crushed /de-stemmed and left on the skins for 18 hours. The juice was left to settle for 2 days before fermentation. A slow and cold fermentation resulted in a full, rich wine. The wine was kept on the lees for 8 months with regular stirring before being stabilised and bottled in November 2014.
