Cape Point Vineyards Auction Reserve White 2011

The grapes for the wine were picked from the Isliedh and Semillon Vineyards on the Noordhoek property, from extremely weak vines yielding only 2 tons/hectare. The grapes were whole bunch pressed in an oxidative manner and put to barrel without settling. Spontaneous and inoculated fermentations took place in 20% new and 80% second fill (and older) barrels with the blend compiled directly after ferment. The wine then spent 13.5 months in barrel with regular battonage before being bottled in May 2012. Tasting Notes: Limes, grapefruit and floral elements dominate the nose with subtle oak. The palate is fresh with floral elements, citrus and a persistent finish.
