Each vineyard was harvested by hand separately in the cool early morning hours to capture the fresh flavours. All the fruit was de-stemmed and crushed before the juice was given an overnight skin contact period. It was then drained and pressed the following day. A two day settling period followed before the individual parcels were fermented separately by a selection of cultured yeast strains.
Protea Sauvignon Blanc
Gentle aromas of stone fruit, nectarine and pear drops with a light brush of flint. Rounded, juicy palate that expresses abundant tropical flavours. The pear drop, nectarine and citrus typicity are easy to find. Bright and lively acidity balances the fruity tropicality, which makes for a fleshy, appealing mouthful. The sublte gravel and flint nuance comes through on the tail. Good length overall.
