Cape Winemakers Guild

Steenberg Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2005

The grapes were harvested at 2am, crushed, destemmed and left on the skins for 6 hours. Fermented in 2nd and 3rd fill French oak at 14 degrees C and then left on the lees for 4 weeks. Fined, filtered and stabilised before being bottled. Tasting Note: Typical cool climate Sauvignon Blanc, strong mineral / flinty characters with subtle hints of barrel smokiness – fresh, austere, yet long palate with great complexity.

Winemaker: John Loubser
