These Waves Viognier 2015
TERROIR / SOIL:
VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS:
An 1 hectare Vineyard planted on a Farm called Smarag in the beautifully Elgin area Yielded the grapes for this wine.
Elgin has a very high rainfall and with a cool summer that makes it a very special area for aromatic wine cultivars like Viognier.
Grapes were hand-harvested in 10kg lug boxes and pre-cooled before hand sorting. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and only 400 liters per ton was drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a special yeast strain. The fermentation took place in 3 x 400 liter French oak barrels. The wine matured for 8 months on lees.
