Kanonberg Sauvignon Blanc – Semillon 2015
R150 / 750ml
Single Vineyard Wine
A classic white blend of the Suider Terras Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, barrel fermented and aged ensures integration of the two components into a seamless duet of beguiling aromas with a broad palate.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are hand harvested from 37 year old vines and the Semillon grapes from 23 year old vines, both from the Northern slope of the Kanonberg mountain. The bunches are pressed whole and then left overnight with enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are innoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation in concrete tanks. As soon as fermentation starts, the Suider Terras wine is moved to 100% new French oak barrels and the Semillion into 40% new and 60% second fill barrels, where they are left to ferment for 11 months before blending and bottling.
