Winemaking

Robertson is a warmer region, so we have to work a bit harder to
produce great Sauvignon Blanc. About 35% of the grapes are harvested
very early at low sugar levels. The wine made from these grapes is high
in acidity, and have prominent grassy aromas, but is low on body and
fruity flavors. The remaining grapes are harvested at higher sugar levels
for fruit flavors and body. Generally the Sauvignon Blanc on Excelsior
grows on alluvial terraces.
Grapes are harvested by hand for greater quality control. The grapes
were immediately destemmed and cooled. Skin contact was maintained
for 6 hours, and then the grapes were carefully pressed in order to avoid
bitter phenols. The wine was then cold fermented for 15 days at
temperatures between 12 and 15° Celsius.

Aging

Lees contact was maintained for 3 months in order to give greater
fullness to the final wine. The various components were blended after
ageing.

Food Pairing

Chicken Fillet with roasted lemons, green olives and capers.
