The wine is really beautifully balanced. The Den wines are comfort wines, and this wine delivers just that.
Sauvignon Blanc is harvested from a small 1 hectare block of vines on Southern Cross farm in Simondium, Paarl. The vineyard at the base of the Simonsberg mountain has decomposed granite soil. The vineyard was planted in 1986 and is not irrigated.
Great care has been taken to ensure that the grapes were picked at the correct time.
This is a warm site, and the lack of irrigation makes sensitivity to the correct picking time especially important. The wine was made at Rheebokskloof. It received the best possible attention, being blanketed with CO2 throughout the crushing and pressing process. 8000 litres was fermented in stainless steel, and a further 1000 litres in 2nd fill French oak 500 litre barrels. Sauvignon Blanc was bottled in early August 2013.
