Suider Terras Sauvignon Blanc 2015
R475 / 750ml
The revival of a legend, Suider Terras has near-mythical status as a source of unique and age-worthy Sauvignon Blanc. The 2015-barrel fermented edition will develop seamlessly, with cellaring up to 10 years.
Grapes are hand harvested from 37 year old vines 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 wine is moved to 100% new French oak barrels, where it is left to ferment for 11 months before bottling.
