THE VINEYARD AND SOIL
The grapes for the Quando Sauvignon Blanc hails from a single vineyard on our farm rooted in four meter deep rich alluvial strata exposed by a receding meander of the Breede River. These deep rich alluvial Table mountain sandstone deposits ensure excellent drainage and the water retention is perfect for Sauvignon blanc not letting the vines go into stress during ripening and losing its flavors. The clones in this vineyard are SB242/SB 11and SB8/7. The vines are double Guyot trained to restrict yield to 8 bunches per vine for flavour concentration and grow a denser canopy for fruit preservation.
Five different harvests were executed over a period of six weeks to capture different flavor spectrums from the vineyard and build in complexity. All the different parcels were vinified separately with inoculated yeast and kept on its gross lees for 3 months at low temperatures, batonaged every week. The final blend was then made up and bottled. We actually blend from the same vineyard.
Focused Winter melon and wet pebble on the nose following through with crisp acidity and classic flintiness. Delicious juicy green fruit on the palate rounds it off elegantly.
