Sauvignon blanc grapes are whole bunch pressed, thereby limiting the amount of soluable solids in the juice, since no settling enzymes are used, before natural fermentation occurs in 3rd & 4th fill French barrique. The wine is aged for a further 7 months on the gross lees, before the wine in racked from barrel and prepared for bottling.
This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc bursts with lime zest, some white peach and pineapple, with hints of oyster shell on the nose. The palate shows a lovely brightness, firm acidity and definite flinty notes, unique to the Reyneke site. The wine reveals multiple layers as it opens up, with rich undertones and great complexity and a long lingering finish. A harmonious wine in all senses showing what the Reyneke Sauvignon Blanc sites can produce.
