2020 Sauvignon Blanc
The grapes were sourced primarily from Stellenbosch, however, also sourced from Darling, Durbanville and Koekenaap on the West Coast. The common denominator was that all vineyards are found within 15km from the ocean and thus the cooling sea breezes and deep red soils resulted in moderate growth which in turn provided a good canopy development for optimal grape ripening conditions. Good rainfall in winter helped to ease the ongoing drought just a little bit and you could see the vineyard was happy. The season started very early with most of our Sauvignon Blanc harvested 10 days earlier than normal.
