Cape Point Vineyards Auction Reserve White 2012

The grapes for the wine were picked from the Semillon and Isliedh vineyards on the Noordhoek property, from extremely weak vines yielding only 3 tons/hectare. The grapes were whole bunch pressed in an oxidative manner and put to barrel (Sauvignon Blanc) and clay amphora (Semillon) without settling. Spontaneous fermentation took place in barrel and amphora where the wines spent 3 months on primary lees. Both wines were then racked and blended with the blend spending a further 10 months in old French Oak before being bottled without fining and filtration. Tasting Notes: Floral elements, stone fruit and citrus dominate the nose and palate. The wine is rich and textured with Semillon taking the lead, very youthful at this stage with the potential to age gracefully over the next 5 ? 10 years.
