Zonnebloem Sauvignon Blanc

Zonnebloem Sauvignon Blanc

Intensely flavoured, with a defined structure and flavours that mature into tropical nuances of guava, green figs and passion fruit. Crisp acidity and apple flesh texture outlines the backbone of the wine, while also enhancing its lingering finish.

Vineyards

Isabel Habets (Viticulturist)
The grapes were sourced from trellised (100%) vines in the Stellenbosch area. Situated at altitudes ranging between 100m to 500m above sea level, these vines grow mainly in deep red soils with some sandy loam on south-facing vineyard slopes.

Winemaking

Elize Coetzee (Cellar Master) / Kelly-Marie Jacobs (Winemaker)
The grapes were harvested by hand, from the beginning to the end of February. Grapes were harvested between 21° to 23 ° Balling, to offer a spectrum of ripeness from light green and flinty to fuller, more tropical flavours.
