Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Durbanville

Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Durbanville

The grapes are sourced from seven of the nine Durbanville Hills member farms and three of them have high altitude vineyards growing on the south-eastern slopes of the Hooge Berg Valley. Crushing and juice handling vary from immediate draining to an average of four hours skin contact. This happens under a layer of dry ice to preserve the typical delicate flavours that are fragile during these first stages of the winemaking process; some ageing on the lees is also employed. A delightful combination of papaya, grapefruit, lime and melon on the nose; the palate is a combination of fruit flavours and green pepper with a crisp acidity and full mouth-feel.
