2015 Rustenberg Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch

Share on Facebook

The Rustenberg Stellenbosch Sauvignon Blanc is grown at some of the highest altitudes that vineyards are grown at in the  Stellenbosch region; just over 550m above  sea level, right against the  Simonsberg Mountain. The  cooling effect of altitude and the oceanic breeze blowing off False Bay and Table Bay which are both within line of sight of the vineyards, combined with the vineyards being planted on West facing slopes make this ideal for the production of a full flavoured, more tropical styled Sauvignon Blanc. Made without the influence of oak the wines are aged on their lees for further palate weight and complexity to balance out the wines' natural acidity.



VINTAGE

The cold wet Winter of 2014 started early and ended late, which is ideal for the vineyards' dormancy; however an unseasonably  cool  Spring  resulted  in  the  vines  going  into  Summer  with  10  to  40%  less  crop  than  usual.  The remainder  of  the  season  was  warm  and  dry  resulting  in  one  of  the  earliest  harvests  on  record.  Zero  disease pressure and small crops of fantastic ripe fruit combined with high natural acids make this potentially the vintage of the decade.
