Harvesting Sauvignon Joseph

PA174804_stefan_potzinger_joseph.JPG On Oct 17, my brother Stefan finished off this year’s wine harvest in proper style gathering in his Sauvignon Joseph grapes. Bright sunshine, blue skies and cool temperatures provided the perfect scene to cut down wonderful grapes that tasted sweet like raisins. PA174753_stefan_cedrik.JPG Three times prior to today’s harvest Stefan and his team has sifted through the vineyard, cutting out grapes threatened by putrefaction or of minor quality to ensure supreme grape quality. The plan has worked out perfectly providing the basis for a premium vintage. The Sauvignon Joseph will be out for you to enjoy in about April 2009.
