Luddite Saboteur White 2021 is produced from a blend of 66% Chenin Blanc, 17% Viognier and 17% Blanc Fumé. Grapes were sourced from four vineyard sites: Bot River, Barton Chenin Blanc harvested 10th February 2021; Bot River, Gabriëlskloof Viognier harvested 10th February 2021; Elgin, Elgin Ridge Sauvignon Blanc harvested 28th February 2021; and Bot River, Stuart Vineyards Chenin Blanc harvested 3rd March 2021. Skin contact time was continued for the Chenin Blanc and Viognier for half the fermentation. Grapes were pressed, taking as much lees and sediment to barrel to complete the fermentation. A small portion of tank fermentation was done for the Chenin Blanc for extra primary fruit. The Sauvignon Blanc, as per normal practice, is pressed directly to barrel without settling to ferment. All the components spent 11 months in French oak barrels of which the majority were old. The wine was left on gross lees with regular batonnage to flesh out the wine. The wine was then racked and blended and the only time SO2 was added was to protect the wine for the bottling process. 9,940 bottles were produced. Bottled at 12.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Orange blossom, peach and apricot.

Palate: White peaches and green plums on entry. A broad, lean mid-palate.

Finish: A salty, citrus finish.
