Sauvignon Blanc 2017

R 90.00

A crisp, floral Sauvignon Blanc bursting with green fruit.

SKU: DWE00007 Category: Tags: ,

Tasting Notes

Pale yellow to clear with a light green tinge in colour. The wine is dominated by lovely tropical notes with underlying green figs and goosberries on the nose. It is underlined with a core of mineral flavours. A crisp line of acidity carries the wine beautifully, with a fresh and lingering finish.


Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were harvested at night and processed reductively to preserve flavours and aromas. After settling out all rough lees, the juice was racked and inoculated with a commercially selected yeast strain and fermented between 13 and 15 degrees Celsius for about a month before some lees contact followed by clarifying and bottling in May 2017.
