Notes on viticulture and winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc grows on south facing slopes, in course degraded granite. By micro managing a small distinct section of the vineyard and intensive berry sampling and tastings, I pick at very specific ripening levels and flavour profiles. After cooling the buches I crush and leave the grapes on the skins for a long as possible without fermentation (the goal is 3 days, but it does not always last that long). Then I press lightly and wild ferment in old French oak barrels, then leave for 6 to 7 months on the lees. The handling is very minimalistic, very expressive and defines the terroir of Polkadraai Sauvignon Blanc.

Look for these flavours:

The bouquet is dominated by green figs, pear and litchi characters. Complex herbal tones like fynbos and sage and a strong backdrop of granite or flint is also prominent on the nose. On the palate, the wine over-delivers with lots of green fig, peach and even green mango.

The minerality and nougat flavours carry the rounded and long lasting palate that lingers forever.

Cellaring potential:

Enioy this wine within 2-3 years.

Food suggestions
