The grapes were harvested, crushed and pressed. After this the must was cold settled for two days and racked before being inoculated with a variety of selected yeast cultures. The wine was fermented cold at 12 – 16°C and given extended lees contact. Reductive winemaking techniques were applied to preserve the fruit character throughout blending and bottling.
Serve our 2011 Sauvigon Blanc at 12 – 15°C. Versatile at the table served with summer salads, or char-grilled artichokes; oysters; grilled line fish and shellfish; calamari; smoked salmon; seafood paella; chicken à la king; and oven baked goat’s milk cheese.
A bright lemon-green colour with a pronounced nose of citrus, lemon zest, green fig and black current leaves all held together by an intriguing floral note. A vivid palate with an engaging concentration of clementine peel, granadilla pulp, Cape Gooseberry and melon. Herbal undertones with a complex, chalky minerality compliments the mouthwatering finish.
