2020 SAUVIGNON BLANC SA TECHNICAL VLOGS
In 2020, Sauvignon Blanc SA presented a series of four Technical Vlogs (video blogs) on the Sauvignon Blanc SA website in lieu of a Technical Seminar due to Covid-19. Speakers focused on technical aspects, including information on the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10. Anyone interested in technical knowledge can watch and learn from these four informative vlogs by experts in various fields:
Dr. Jeanne Brand of the Department of Viticulture and Oenology at Stellenbosch University, explains a dynamic sensory technique that could be used to distinguish premium and ultra-premium Sauvignon blanc wines.
Lida Malandra, General Manager of Enartis SA, shares information about the revolutionary product from Enartis, Nutriferm X, that is bringing power to thiol production.
Matija Lescovic, Oenology PhD Candidate at Department of Viticulture and Oenology at Stellenbosch University, shares recommendations from a recent study about copper additions to remove stinky odours.
Dr Carien Coetzee of Basic Wine and Sauvignon Blanc SA, discusses the 2020 Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10 wines, giving an overview of the core elements (viticulture, winemaking, chemistry and sensory) that created these award-winning wines.
The four vlogs are available for viewing at no cost.
