Casey’s Ridge Sauvignon Blanc 2014

The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc showcases the expression of fruit from our vineyards in Elgin.

The vineyards are aged between 5-6 years and every year we are more excited about the quality of the fruit from our Casey’s Ridge property.

The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and the juice was fermented with different yeast strains in stainless steel tanks and the wine spent 5 months on the lees. The result is a vivid, rich Sauvignon Blanc with an excellent nose and palate.

 

Tasting Notes

Our Sauvignon Blanc shows typical cool climate aromas with flinty notes, lime, granadilla and gooseberry. The wine is perfectly balanced with fresh acidity, great mouth-feel, rich minerality and a crisp, yet smooth finish. The wine was bottled under Stelvin closure to ensure optimal freshness and no cork-taint!

Winemaker Notes

Our goal with the Vrede en Lust Sauvignon Blanc is for a wine with elegance, balance and richness. The grapes were harvested at different sugar levels late in February up until mid March. The juice was fermented separately and blended post fermentation.
