Hidden Valley Stellenbosch 2016 Sauvignon Blanc
If you look hard enough

You can probably find something to wine about.

A quick glance at social media suggests Trump's latest antics are and always will be the firm favourite, but don't follow the crowd if you don't want to.

Maybe you're feeling down about the fact that, short of 1 more in September, we're out of public holidays until mid-December. Or maybe something closer to home upset you, like your missus eating your last Kit Kat finger when you weren't looking.

Just to be clear, we don't mean whine. Whining is for toddlers and the YouTube comments section.

Deal with your problems the way society taught us. By popping a bottle and pretending they don't exist.

About the wine

An estate relabelling of the 2016 Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Pineapple and litchi lead this tropical Sauvignon blanc with zesty acidity and steely minerality towards the finish. Upfront fruitiness is followed by a medium-bodied palate and lingering aftertaste. The three years in bottle has softened the acidity of the wine perfectly expressing the fruit beautifully.

In the vineyard

Soil: Oakleaf

About the harvest: This Sauvignon Blanc was picked from various top-quality vineyards, at between 25° B.

In the cellar

Our vineyard blocks were harvested at different levels of ripeness to ensure complexity of flavour and fresh, delicate acidity. The fruit was picked early in the morning, kept cold and pressed on arrival at the cellar. The resulting juice was treated reductively to preserve the delicate flavours. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures and then kept on fine lees for a further 6 weeks to enhance mouthfeel.
