The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are picked in different stages of ripeness in order to capture the green, grassy flavours of the earlier, ?greener? fruit and then later the more tropical flavours of the ripe fruit. In the cellar the clean juice are inoculated with a special cultivated wine yeast and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks between 13 and 15?C till dry. After fermentation the wine is left on the fine lees for as long as possible before bottling.
Rietvallei John B Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc expresses flavours of lemon zest, grapefruit and tropical fruits on the nose which follows through on the palate. The pallet also reveals a hint of minerality and a well balancing acidity resulting in a zesty, long-lasting aftertaste. A fresh, fruity dry wine for everyday enjoyment.
