John Loubser Thirteen 2011Sauvignon Blanc 50%, Semillon 50% Wine of Origin Constantia
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 ° 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.
