BIG DEAL 80: Y-SAUVIGNON BLANC 2013

COMPOSITION 100 % Sauvignon Blanc

VINEYARDS To obtain a certain style of wine for our new Y-Sauvignon Blanc, we knew where we had to look for the grapes. These grapes was sourced from one of the best Sauvignon Blanc producers in one of the best Sauvignon Blanc regions in the Cape, namely Durbanville.

WINEMAKING The grapes were picked in the early morning of the 1st of February. After being trucked to Yonder Hill, the winemaking process started. Fermentation took place over a time of 20 days, where after it left on the lees for 5 months before bottling.

WINEMAKER’S A easy drinking style of Sauvignon Blanc. On the nose there is abundance of tropical fruit flavours, as well as gooseberries, Litchis and Pineapples. The pallet is nice an round with a full fruit taste, and a nice crisp finish. Why not, Y Sauvignon Blanc?
