in the vineyard : 

The grapes for this wine were sourced from cooler vineyards in the Western Cape region ensuring ripe fruit flavours so typical of Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa.

Our Viticulturist sources the finest quality grapes from the Western Cape for the Pavillion wines. Vines were pruned to two-bud spurs during July and August. Shoots were removed leaving only two to three per hand-spaced spur. Shortly after veraison, unevenly ripened bunches were removed for greater flavour concentration in the berries remaining on the vine.

about the harvest: Almost 60% of the grapes were hand-picked during the early morning, with the rest picked during the cool of the evening to ensure maximum retention of the fine fruit flavours.

in the cellar : After light pressing, the grapes were cold-fermented in stainless steel tanks at an average tempreture of 15°C, which allowed the fresh, natural frappe flavours to be captured in the wine.
