Cape Winemakers Guild

John Loubser Thirteen 2011

The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are both new plantings that come off block 13A and 13B at Steenberg Vineyards respectively – they were harvested on the same day at 23.5 degrees balling and co-fermented in one large 500 litre third fill barrel (in a cold room). After 10 months of maturation, the wine was naturally fined and cold stabilised in the barrel and then bottled. Tasting Notes: Typical minerality derived from decomposed granite – complex tropical fruit supported by subtle oak nuances – perfect balance between structure and texture.
