Description

Neethlingshof Estate Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard wine from the Stellenbosch wine-growing region. It is 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

The Neethlingshof estate in Stellenbosch takes its name from its 19th century owner, Marthinus Laurentius Neethling, who served as mayor of Stellenbosch and was a member of the Cape Parliament. A member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative, acknowledged for its protection of indigenous habitat, the 378 ha winery has set aside 127 ha for conservation. It cultivates both red and white varietals, with the bias marginally in favour of whites. The major red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Malbec and Pinotage. The major white grape varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Gewurztraminer. The predominant soil types found on the farm are Oakleaf and Tukulu.

The grapes for the Neethlingshof Estate Sauvignon Blanc come a 3.7 hectare block of vines planted in 1997. The vines are vertically trellised on hedge systems of varying height according to vigour. They receive supplementary irrigation through a drip system when necessary. The south-west facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for a concentrated intensity of flavour.  The grapes are crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks between 13° and 15° C. Winemaker is De Wet Viljoen.
