2011 Sauvignon Blanc, Delaire Graff Estate
Product Code#:6002441-000964

The 2011 conditions, as challenging as they were, resulted in grapes with beautiful concentrated flavours.  Yields were down, but winemakers were generally very pleased with the quality of the grapes.

The grapes where 100% hand picked in the refreshing hours of the early morning from three premium wine regions: Olifantsrivier (West Coast);  Walker Bay and Durbanville.  This combination brings the unique flavours from each region in full harmony.

The grapes did not receive any skin contact and where gently pressed.  Fermentation lasted almost 3 weeks at 12°C and then left on primary lees for 6 weeks post fermentation.
