about the harvest: Harvest date: February / March 2018

in the cellar : This wine is made up of a series of Sauvignon Blanc building blocks from different sites on Steenberg - harvested at different ripeness levels. Each block yields unique characteristics ranging from flinty, grassy, green pepper to gooseberry and ripe tropical flavours. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool, early mornings, starting at 2AM, to retain the delicate flavours. Skin maceration occurred after crushing from 8 - 24 hours at 10°C. The juice settled overnight, after which it was racked off clean, inoculated with yeast and allowed to ferment for up to 30 days at temperatures between 11°C - 13°C. Post fermentation; the wine lay on its fine lees for 60 - 90 days until blending, stabilising and bottling starting in mid-June 2018.
