Lands End Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2008

The grapes for this wine were harvested at our Elim farm in the chilly early mornings and transported to Stellenbosch in lug boxes. To preserve flavours and minimize oxidation, the still cool grapes were crushed immediately upon arrival. Neutral yeasts were used to ferment the juice at low temperatures (12-14 degrees C) and the wine was aged on the lees for three months with occasional stirring to add complexity and weight to the palate. Tasting note: The wine was blended from Sauvignon Blanc, that lends fruit and a steely minerality to the wine, and 15% Semillon that in turn adds additional weight to the palate. This classic cool climate Sauvignon shows succulent, wild tropical fruit while flinty mineral tones follow on the palate. The palate shows incredible weight and length and this wine has the potential to age well with careful cellaring.
