Estate | Suider Terras Sauvignon Blanc 2016

R300 / 750ml

The revival of a legend, Suider Terras on Bloemendal has near-mythical status as a source of unique and age-worthy Sauvignon Blanc. A vibrant gold hue with green core, the wine explodes with what is now a standard Suider Terras character; fynbos, herbs, chalk, and lime; on taste, this wine is robust and built for serious aging and development; the structure was given preference over perfume for this wine. The 2016 barrel-fermented edition will develop seamlessly with cellaring for up to 10 years.

Vinification

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 the enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are inoculated 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.
