Cape Winemakers Guild

Saronsberg CWG Viognier 2011

Harvested by hand, pressed whole-bunch and fermented in a 500-litre French oak barrel with wild yeast. The wine was left on its lees for 10 months, racked and kept in barrel for 14 months. Second-fill oak was used so as not to mask the delicate perfume and fragrance of Viognier. Tasting Notes: Delicate yellow fruit flavours, white peach, subtle spice notes and an understated perfume shows Viognier at its best. The palate shows balanced oak, a full- bodied creaminess and pure fruit expression which captures Saronsberg’s aspiration to showcase Viognier?s elegance and finesse as expressed through wild fermentation and gentle oak use.

Winemaker: Dewaldt Heyns
