Diemersdal Winter Ferment Sauvignon Blanc

Diemersdal pushes the boundries with this innovative style of Sauvignon Blanc. After the harvest, the grape juice was frozen to -20˚C for five months. After thawing, fermentation took place in the heart of the Cape winter, producing a uniquely tropical style of Sauvignon Blanc. The primary feature is the high occurrence of thiol compounds, which gives Sauvignon Blanc the passion fruit and gooseberry flavours, made famous in New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs.
