A Sauvignon Blanc will full ripe gooseberry, pear and litchi flavours and slightly green nose that carries through to the palate.
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are harvested at low, early morning temperatures and brought directly to the cellar. At the cellar the grapes are destemmed and crushed and skin contact is allowed for a few hours. The grapes are then pressed for juice extraction, and the free run juice kept separate. The Sauvignon Blanc juice is allowed to settle for two days before the clear juice is racked and inoculated with a yeast culture to start fermentation.
In 1698, the two Cronier brothers arrived at the Cape of Good Hope on the ship, Driebergen. Shortly after their arrival, they were granted ownership of the farms Olyvenhout and Champagne (known today as the town of Wellington).
The vines planted in this fertile soil and excellent winemaking terroir produce the very best grapes for making fine wines. In that tradition, Cronier Wines brings you a pledge of quality and the art of winemaking in every bottle.
