Description

Tasting Notes

“Distinctive complexity with layers of tropical fruit, pineapple, green pepper and gooseberries. This vibrant styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a vivid lemon-lime colour, with a flinty thread throughout, underpinned by freshness. As the wine evolves, it develops green apple and kiwi fruit in the glass, with intriguing floral tones. The well-structured mid-palate is balanced by beautiful acidity. The hero of this wine is unquestionably the purity of the fruit it was made from”. Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

An ideal pairing with goats cheese soufflé or freshly caught line fish with a squeeze of lemon. Its fresh characters are a delightful complement to the fresh flavors of seafood, shellfish and spring vegetables.

Vinification

Bunches were sorted on a conveyor, destemmed but not crushed followed by a period of skin contact. After a gentle pressing, using only the 1st 55%, the juice was left for 24 hours to allow the gross sediment to settle. Fermentation was in stainless steel tanks and completed when the wine was dry. The wine was then kept on its fine yeast lees, and continually stirred to enhance the character over a period of 3 months.

Bottling Date

May, 2020
