Mellish Family Vineyards Bakenkop Blanc Fumé 2018

“An expertly crafted wooded Sauvignon Blanc from the Durbanville Wine Route.”

Availability: Out of stock
Style: White
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Country: South Africa | Durbanville
750ml ABV. 12.5

These 17 year old vines are located on the South-Facing slopes of Bakenkop over-looking the Atlantic Ocean.

The grapes were hand-picked early in the morning then whole-bunch pressed.

65% of the wine was racked into old French oak barrels and 35% to stainless steel tanks.

After fermentation, the wine remained on the lees for 7 months before bottling.

Beautiful saline undertones on the palate with a bone-dry finish and creamy nose suggesting oak.
