Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2018

Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2018

This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.

Very good while preparing a meal or out on the patio. Ideal with fish, chicken, pasta and friends.

in the vineyard : Region: Stellenbosch, Elim and Darling
Soil: Combination of decomposed granite,“Koffieklip”, Yellow Ferricrete, Red Ferricrete and White quartz
Locality: North-East/South-West/North-South

about the harvest: We always look for a hint of tropical ripeness, as well as a crisp clean backbone to carry the wine. To achieve this, grapes are hand-picked from 3 vineyards, approximately 300 miles apart. This gives three unique flavour profiles; all made separately and then blended straight after being drained off the lees.
Yield: Between 4 and 9 t/ha

in the cellar : After crushing, pumped through mashcooler straight to press for draining. Freerun juice settled and fermented separately from pressings. Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase “creamy” character. Juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
