Mount Rozier The Flower Garden Sauvignon Blanc 2019
(R450.00 for 6 x 750ml)
Has the pale straw colour of youth, with a tinge of green. A complex wine, there’s melon and grapefruit on a bed of apple and Bosche pear, with a seam of freshness giving vitality and extending the flavours. Reflecting the vintage, this shows perfectly ripe fruit, full flavoured and round. Full of character and delicious.

100% sauvignon blanc from vines averaging 9 years. The vineyards are planted on two separate sites, with predominant soil types being hutton / tukulu and shale. One site on the Schapenberg sits at 280m altitude the other on the Simonsberg at c. 400m. Vine Density averages 3095 vines per hectare, with all vines drip irrigated. Grapes were handpicked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours. Bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed as gently as possible. After crushing the grapes, they undergo four hours of skin contact inside of the press to enhance flavour extraction. The juice is settled until clear before racked and cold fermented (10 – 14 ˚C) for almost 1 month in stainless steel tanks to enhance the typical varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for 5 months with regular batonage before being racked, fined with bentonite and cold stabilized in preparation for bottling.
