The Goose The Goose "T-Box" Sauvignon Blanc Reserve

Situated 2250ft above sea level and with an average annual temperature of a mere 17.2 degrees Celsius, the single vineyard Sauvignon Block is located in arguably the coldest viticultural pocket in the South African Winelands. These extreme climatic conditions ensure grapes of world-class quality and wines of noted complexity and elegance. The single-vineyard block is located on the northern slope of the farm and consistently produces some of the most impressive Sauvignon Blanc fruit in the Southern Hemisphere, grapes with high natural acidity, a balanced pH and supreme depth of character. The 2011 vintage was trademarked by a long, even, ripening period with no notable heat waves and cool evenings during harvest time, preserving the delicate and distinctive flavour profile of the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. The grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning and handled with extreme care from vineyard to bottle. Minimal interference in the cellar results in a terroir-driven wine of great distinction. Matured in a new 500L French Oak Barrels for 9 months and bottled unfiltered and unfined, The Goose "T-BOX" Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2011 is a wine showcasing all the greatest aspects of the unique and extreme Upper-Langkloof Ward - cool-climate complexity, elegance, balance, longevity and structure.
