Cape Point Vineyards Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2010

The grapes for the wine are picked from the Isliedh Vineyard on the Noordhoek property from extremely weak vines yielding only 2 tons/hectare. Grapes are whole bunch pressed in an oxidative manner and put to barrel without settling. Spontaneous and inoculated fermentations take place in 50% new and 50% 2nd fill 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 2011. Tasting note: Limes, grapefruit and floral elements dominate the nose with subtle oak. The palate is fresh with a floral, limey intensity and a persistent finish. Drink now and over the next 5 years.
