Benguela Vinography Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Distinctively brave, this wine wins you over with its intense yet elegant physique. Luscious aromas of lemon, quince and pineapple are framed with spicy notes and wild florals. The palate rewards with a refined chalky texture, plenty fruit weight and a racy acidity. A flinty character persists with a salty aftertaste to balance the creaminess.

Ageing
Cellar The grapes from our one hectare vineyard were hand-picked in the cool morning and sorted at the cellar. The bunches were destemmed and crushed, followed by 8 hours of skin contact to extract delicate flavours. The juice was settled for 48 hours, racked and inoculated with a sequential inoculation of non-saccharomyces (Pichia kluyveri) and saccharomyces yeasts. Transferred to barrel halfway through fermentation, the wine matured on its lees for ten months to add texture and complexity.
