Tasting Notes

This wine reveals the charisma of South African Sauvignon Blanc, showing ample aromatics and style. Extended lees contact adds richness and complexity with a clean and mineral character. Asparagus, cut grass and sweet melon tones are all evident on the nose, while the palate shows generous hints of green peas and figs. The finish is well balanced with a flavoursome and tantalizing aftermath.

In The Vineyard

Type of climate: Moderate sunny days with cool nights and sea breezes from both Atlantic and Indian Ocean in the afternoon.



In The Cellar

After harvesting, the grapes are delivered to the cellar in crates. Red wine is made from the pulp of red grapes and fermentation occurs together with the grape skins, which give the wine its color. White wine is made by fermenting juice after pressing crushed grapes to extract juice and removing the skins. Rosé wines are either made from red grapes where the juice is allowed to stay in contact with the dark skins long enough to pick up a pinkish color (blanc de noir) or by blending red wine and white wine, which is the case with our Pinot Noir/Chardonnay.

Un-wooded white wines are matured in stainless steel tanks only, whilst wooded white wines mature in French oak barrels which is also the case with our reds. Maturation of up to 18 months occurs in 500L French oak barrels.

Additional Information
Together with the age old traditions of Dry Land viticulture, Perdeberg’s Dry Land Collection wines are a fine display of the ability of bush vines. Grapes grown under dry land conditions, create intensely flavored and succulent wines, as these stressful conditions result in smaller berries with a lower skin to juice ratio, producing high quality wines.
