The finish is crisp, pure and refreshing.

TERROIR / SOIL:
From terroir unfettered by artificial pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers. The organically grown Sauvignon Blanc grapes grow in two vineyard blocks. four and six years of age, and planted in rich lime Karoo soils in an area called Lutzville. Situated 10kms from the Atlantic coast, the vineyards enjoy moderate day temperatures with cool nights and receive an annual rainfall of approximately 150mm.

WINEMAKING:
The grapes were harvested at night to help maintain freshness and prevent oxidation. The cooled grapes were de-stemmed, slightly crushed, and lightly pressed in the cellar. This cool climate grape's natural acidity levels were respected, with no additional acidity added throughout the winemaking process. The juice was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. Maturation occurred on the gross lees for four months prior to bottling to give the wine extra elegance, flavour, and freshness.
