Our grapes came from a block in our Stellenbosch vineyards. All the vineyards were trellised. All grapes are harvested by hand in individual bins in optimal conditions to ensure true quality from beginning to end.
We do whole bunch press. The juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks where it settled over night. Fermentation took 14 days at a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius. The wine was bottles in October 2012.
We believe that our wine improves with age and can be drunk from after a year or two of being in the bottle. We therefore strive to release our new vintages at the end of the year of harvest.
The Usana Sauvignon Blanc is a beautifully balanced wine. The wine has hints of tropical fruit on the nose and palate. There are hints of litchi, apricot and passion fruit.
The Usana Sauvignon Blanc is a superb wine for drinking on its own on a nice warm summer afternoon or it can be perfectly partnered with salads, fish and chicken dishes.
