Maastricht Sauvignon Blanc 2022


From the vineyard
The fertile Durbanville soil, quality of the dry-land Sauvignon Blanc
grape, the high rainfall and warmer summer days and cooler nights all
contribute to the quality of Maastricht wines.

In the cellar
The grapes were machine-harvested at 23.5 o Balling in the early morning
hours, allowing the grapes to arrive cool in the cellar. After crushing and
de-stemming, the grapes were given skin contact for 12 hours before
pressing. The juice was fermented with DELTA yeast strain in stainless
steel tank at 14-16o C. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to
mature on the lees to gain extra complexity.

The winemakers notes
The nose is intense and complex with tropical fruit, grapefruit and
passion fruit flavors and hints of green pepper and figs. These distinctive
aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe
fruit. The palate weight of Maastricht Sauvignon Blanc is also a
distinguishing factor, adding to the prestige of this variety synonymous
with Durbanville Valley.
