Peacock Wild Ferment Sauvignon Blanc, Stellenbosch
A selection from Stellenbosch’s most maritime Sauvignon Blanc sites, with the judicious addition of some Waterkloof Estate fruit. A crisp, yet elegant wine with green and lemon flavours. The mineral core lifts the concentrated fruit on the palate.
From the coolest, most coastal area of Stellenbosch: The Schapenberg. In this cooler and more windswept area the variety produces lower yields and has a longer ripening time, ensuring balanced flavours, fine poise and a long finish. Four of South Africa’s twenty WWF Biodiversity & Wine Initiative Champions (which includes Waterkloof amongst their number) are located on the Schapenberg and Helderberg. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with wild yeast and the wine then spends an extended period on the lees before bottling.
