Vineyard info/Viticulture
Sauvignon Blanc is harvested from a small 1 hectare block of vines on Southern Cross farm in Simondium, Paarl. The vineyard at the base of the Simonsberg mountain has decomposed granite soil. The vineyard was planted in 1986 and is not irrigated.
Vinification
This is a warm site, and the lack of irrigation makes sensitivity to the correct picking time especially important. The wine was made at Rheebokskloof. It received the best possible attention, being blanketed with CO2 throughout the crushing and pressing process. 8000 litres was fermented in stainless steel, and a further 1000 litres in 2nd fill French oak 500 litre barrels.
