How it's made

Boutinot has been refining and redefining its Sauvignon Blanc vineyards over many years and work with numerous Coastal growers to best express the specific terroirs of this region which is so influenced by that cooling Atlantic Ocean breeze. The soil type is a variety of decomposed granite, shale and limestone and the plots are all unirrigated. The winery receives the grapes before midday. They are destemmed, crushed and then go into strainers where the free run juice is pumped gently to tank. The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks between 52-55 degrees F. The ferment is likely to last around 10 days. The wine is then racked after the ferment process and kept on fine lees right up until bottling.

Tasting Notes

A juicy, tropical Sauvignon Blanc sourced from breezy coastal vineyards. This Sauvignon Blanc from the Western Cape displays fresh, ripe yellow fruit flavors with a hint of waxy lime and plum stone, as well as some leafy herbal notes which makes for a zippy, racy and deeply quaffable drop.
