2020 Sauvignon Blanc, Vogelzang 750ML
Vogelzang is a tremendous site. We have leased several acres here since 2009, and these wines have been some of our most decorated and long-lived wines – as much as the reds! Vines are now 20 years old and in their prime.
In 2020 the vessels selected for this wine were 100% French oak barrels of varying sizes (228L barriques, 276L “cigars”, and 300L and 320 L “Muid’ocs”). In total the new wood represented 22% of the blend. The wine was aged for a total of 18 months on its lees before bottling.
The resulting wine shows classic Vogelzang character of powerful stone fruit, mango and pineapple aromas, with some floral and herb notes, followed by dramatic fruit flavors of great concentration and texture leading to a whiplash of citrus dominated acidity and effusive minerality, which gives a tremendous finish.
Extremely Limited. Only 260 cases produced. Most going to the Wine Club in February 2023.
