Durbanville Hills Biesjes Kraal Sauvignon Blanc Case - 6 x 750ml

Nine leading vineyard owners in the durbanville district joined forces with Distell to create Durbanville hills with the aim of promoting the regional individuality of this prime wine-growing area. The striking Durbanville hills cellar it's proudly a top a series of rolling hills with magnificent views of table mountain and table bay the very geography that lies at the heart of what makes the wines so unique. The Durbanville ward is considered one of the cape's coolest wine regions, thanks to the sea breezes that drift inland from false bay and table bay and the late afternoon mists that bathe the slopes. These conditions are ideal for the slow ripening of the grapes, allowing them to develop their full flavoured and intense character. Grapes are sourced only from the shareholder growers, all of whom farm within the limited appellation of Durbanville. Meticulous canopy management promotes concentration of varietal flavour and colour. Cellar master Martin Moore uses highly advanced cellar technology to ensure optimal extraction of colour and flavour. Sustainable practices includes the maintaining of the International environmental standard ISO140001, treating of waste water back to irrigation quality and all vineyards subscribing to IPW(Integrated Production of Wine) growing practices, designed to sustain natural resources. In addition the farmers protect 320ha of endangered Renosterveld as part of the biodiversity wine initiative (BWI). The wine takes it's name from Biesjes Kraal, an early outpost in what is now Millerton, where salt was collected and for oxen to graze and rest.

The Vineyards: Vineyard Consultant Henk Van Graan:
The winter preceding the 2014 vintage was wet and cold and the crucial flavour producing ripening period for Sauvignon blanc grapes was cool and dry, resulting in very healthy grapes with small berries and concentrated flavour. The untrellised block imparted intense earthy, peppery flavours which we prefer for this single vineyard wine.

The Wine Making:
The grapes were hand-picked at 23,5 degrees Celsius balling towards the end of February, with prominent grassy flavours. The crushed fruit were given six hours' skin contact to extract all possible flavour before the juice was cold fermented between 12 degrees celsius and 14 degrees celsius. Dry ice was used to protect the must and young wine against oxidation.

Wine Maker: 
Martin moore and Gunther Kellerman

Brilliant green

The nose is a well balanced combination of lime with fresh asparagus and herbaceous characteristics.

Mouth-filling and crisp with lime zest, asparagus and hints of minerality, ending with a long, lingering aftertaste.

Food Paring:
Enjoy on it's own slightly chilled or served with tomato based soup, fish and seafood dishes, fresh oysters, goat's milk cheese, vinaigrette based salads or grilled fish, and a salad of tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella
