More Information

In the cellar

This vintage of Sauvignon Blanc harvested from the south facing vineyards on Weltevreden Estate. The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and taken into the cellar in the early morning to maintain freshness and acidity. After being inoculated with yeast, the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks

In the vineyard

Harvest 2022 was about 2 weeks later than normal. After a proper cold winter with enough rain, budbreak was 2 weeks late. The earlier part of the season was quite cool, with December showing lower maximum and minimum temperatures. January was more moderate with a couple of hot days. The slow ripening conditions resulted in concentrated fruit development and palate weight.

Food Pairing
