Arniston Bay Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2018

THE WINEMAKING

Grapes are sourced from the Stellenbosch region and selected from premium blocks prior to fermentation. The combination of our soil diversity with cool night temperatures and cool coastal fog, ensure high quality Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The vines are trellised on a 5-wire hedge system with an average yield of 10 tons/ha. The selected vineyards are harvested during the night and early mornings over a two week period to get a wider flavour profile ranging from greener to more tropical aromas – 22 - 24oB. No excessive skin contact, two days of settling
prior fermentation. Primary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 13 - 15oC. The juice is handled quite reductively up until bottling of the final product. No wood treatment.

WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS

Classical rich and fresh Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon complexity with ripe stone fruit
and guava, complemented with strong vegetative and herbaceous aromas. A fresh, easy-drinking wine, with silky undertones that is well-balanced on the palate with a lingering after taste of tropical fruits and asparagus.
