Celestina Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon 2017

R140.00

VINIFICATION

The blend is made up of 50.4% Sauvignon Blanc and 49.6% Semillon, harvested together as a field blend. After overnight cooling, the bunches were destemmed and crushed. The juice was passed to a stainless steel tank for fermentation until it reached 10 deg balling, after which the must was transferred to old 300! & 500! barrels, to complete its fermentation to dryness. Here it evolved until January 2018, when it was bottled. Only 4,100 bottles were produced.

Overall, it displays the distinctive Cape Agulhas characteristics of lean raciness with great purity and energy. The Sauvignon Blanc is chiselled and grassy with hints of fig and lime zest. The Semillon adds a dimension of yellow fruits, palate weight and softens the edges. For those who like that cold climate clarity but love a Sauvignon slightly richer, this is the wine for them. It will mature beautifully in bottle until 2020+
