Zalze Sauvignon Blanc 2014
The grapes for this wine were grown in Stellenbosch, West Coast, Darling, Durbanville and Walker Bay regions, with yields averaging seven tons per hectare. Having vineyards in a 15km ratio from the sea, the cooling breezes together with a good leaf canopy protect the grapes from the influence of heat waves and the sun on the grapes.
The 2014 ripening season was a season in which three large rainfalls occurred resulting into a two week longer hanging time before picking. No excessive water was required during the ripening period. Each block was sampled intensely to monitor the development of the typical cultivar flavours and to ensure that grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, between 22 - 24 °B.
