Product guide note

Sauvignon Blanc is a very distinctive grape variety. It makes dry, refreshing, white wines usually fairly light in body with intense aromas of citrus fruit and grass. This wine has these characteristics and some tropical passion fruit aromas.

Production information

Producer: Stellenrust

Stellenrust bottled its first wine on the farm in 1928. Today the winery is run by the brothers Tertius (winemaker) and Kobus (viticulturist), and is one of the largest family-run Fairtrade estates in Stellenbosch, with 500 hectares of land under vine.  The brothers are committed to following their father’s dream: to give back to the workers, who themselves had given so much to the farm.

Production note

5 - 15 year old trellised and 36 year old bushvines Bottelary Hills. 2013 was recognised as a great vintage for white varietals in the Cape. Lower average temperatures caused slower ripening of the grapes. This in turn let to richer wines at lower alcohol levels with great fruit concentration. A sectional harvest was carried out. A third is picked at 18° Balling (greener flavours), a third at 20° Balling and a third at 22° Balling (more tropical flavours).
