100% Sauvignon Blanc
In The Vineyard
This is the only variety that is not grown on Hoopenburg. The grapes for this wine are sourced only from the coolest slopes in the Western Cape, enabling only the best Sauvignon grape flavours to be released into the wine.
About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested by hand earlier this year into small 20kg cases. The grapes were then transported in the cool of the morning to the Hoopenburg cellar.
In The Cellar
The grapes were hand tipped into the press for a long three hour whole bunch pressing session. After this the juice was cold fermented for three weeks in stainless steel tanks. Once dry the wine was racked off its ferment lees and aged for a six months before being bottled.
