      Tasting Notes
      Our Sauvignon blanc grapes are whole bunch pressed, thereby limiting the amount of soluable solids in the juice, since no settling enzymes are used, before natural fermentation occurs in 3rd & 4th fill French barrique. The wine is aged for a further 7 months on the
      gross lees, before the wine in racked from barrel and prepared for bottling.

      This vibrant Sauvignon Blanc bursts with gooseberry, honeydew melon, some white peach and hints of lemon zest on the nose. The palate shows a lovely brightness, firm acidity and definite flinty notes, unique to the Reyneke site. The wine reveals multiple layers as it opens up, with rich undertones and great complexity and a long lingering finish. A harmonious wine in all senses showing what the Reyneke Sauvignon Blanc sites can produce.

      "The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc comes from three vineyards, whole bunch pressed and fermented in used barriques. It has a crisp, stony bouquet with light apple blossom and Granny Smith aromas. The palate is crisp, taut and linear; saline in the mouth with hints of capsicum and apple peelings towards the finish. Not the most persistent Sauvignon Blanc, but one of the more interesting. 89 Points" (Neal Martin, eRobertparker.com, April 2017)
