A firm favourite, this Sauvignon Blanc delivers year after year with flavours of gooseberries, asparagus and lemongrass.
Excellent served with fish and other seafood dishes.
The grapes were selected from premium vineyards in the Stellenbosch region. The vines were grown in a diverse soil type with cool night temperatures and coastal fog to ensure high quality Sauvignon Blanc with expressive varietal characters. The vines were trellised on a five-wire system with an average yield of 10 tons/ha.
The grapes were harvested during the night and early mornings at 22° to 24° Balling over a two week period to ensure a broad spectrum of flavours. No skin contact was allowed and a two-day period for settling was followed prior to fermentation. Fermentation took place at 13° - 15° Celsius in stainless steel tanks. The wine was left on its primary fermentation lees for about two months to ensure a more complex, balanced palate with a lingering finish.
Crisp and fresh with a light, straw colour. The palate delivers a hint of sweet elegance, while the nose shows a cascade of gooseberries, asparagus and and other tropical aromas.
Ready to be enjoyed now with the potential to age for two years.
