Description

Shannon Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Shannon Sanctuary Peak Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is made of 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes. A lightly wooded Sauvignon Blanc that has wonderful flavors of grapefruit, lime and green herbs, asparagus and some capsicum in a minerally and flinty style.

Shannon vineyard average production of their Sauvignon Blanc is roughly 6-8 tons per hectare.  Sitting 260 metres to 300 metres above sea level and an Average growing season temperature of a cool 17,5°C. Summers are dry with abundant rainfall, mostly in the winter months. Harvest began on the last week of February and first week of March.

The focus of this wine is based on a vineyard component arising from low yielding Table Mountain Sandstone soils. Using neutral yeasts, Shannon Sauvignon Blanc expresses very distinctive and concentrated primary fruit aromas. The clay/shale soils however, provide the Sauvignon Blanc with flavours on the riper side of the fruit spectrum and with more structure for a broader palate. The blending in of naturally fermented Sauvignon Blanc, matured on the lees, provides a fuller mouth feel and adds to the complexity of the wine.

The grapes are chilled to 3ºC. The bunches are sorted on a conveyor, destemmed and crushed. All transfers of grape must and juice in these early stages are attained using gravity. Selected parcels of the grapes undergo a period of skin contact, at 8ºC to encapture favourable skin flavours. After a gentle pressing, the juice is left to settle for a period of 72 hours at 2ºC. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks continues at 12ºC until the wine is dry.
