This is the 10th vintage of the Two dogs, a Peacock and a Horse Sauvignon Blanc. The wine is translucent with a bright green hue. The nose is opulent and bursts with a cocktail of fruits, showing aromas of peach, passionfruit, pear, and litchi. The palate is lively and concentrated with flavors of melon, tropical fruits, gooseberry, and creamy richness from the extended lees contact and lingers with vibrant acidity and minerality.

Source of Grapes: Western Cape, South Africa The fruit for our 2022 Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from various vineyard sites around the Western Cape of South Africa. Each site contributes a different flavor profile to the final blend as it grows on diverse soil types and slopes. Each vineyard is handled separately to capture its unique personality. Harvest dates: Mid-February to Mid-March 2022 Winemaking: Each vineyard is harvested and vinified separately to ensure maximum complexity. All our fruit are hand-picked in the early morning and handled reductively to preserve the fruit’s integrity. After destemming, a period of skin contact is allowed according to chemical analysis, phenolic and flavor ripeness. 3days of cold settling follow a light pressing to clarify the juice. A maximum of 600l/ton is recovered at this stage. Each vineyard is inoculated with selected yeast to match its flavor profile. Fermentation lasts for 21-30days at 13-16°C. 2 Months of full lees contact, with regular stirring, is allowed post-fermentation to add richness and texture to the wine. The components are then blended and stabilized before bottling. Maturation: Two months on its primary lees with batonage weekly
