Hermanuspietersfontein Vloekskoot Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Renowned for its character and versatility, Sauvignon Blanc is notoriously demanding of its growing conditions, the viticulturist’s skill and the winemaker’s craft. After many years of experimenting with different coopers, grains, toasting levels, barrel sizes, ages of barrels, time in barrels and different winemaking techniques and terroir, I’ve found the ‘sweet spot’. Good integration between fruit and wood comes with time, but too much time can also result in ‘oak juice’. This wine was bottled after 13 months in a big barrel with regular rolling and no stirring. The reward has been great this year, and with our Vloekskoot, we invite you to celebrate an exceptional harvest and the outstanding quality we have achieved. Tasting Notes: A true reflection of Sunday’s Glenn terroir, with nuances of Granny Smith apple from the small portion of Nouvelle, the oily, lanolin texture of Semillon and a bowl full of ripe Sauvignon Blanc fruit, harmoniously finished off with well integrated oak.
