Tasting Notes
Brilliant lime greencolour with an explosion of passion fruit, guava, grapefruit and pineapple. Full-bodied wine with a mix bowl of tropical fruit flavours, citrus and sits on the palate with a lingering freshness. The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering harmonious finish.

Winemaking Report
It was expected at this early stage that the 2019 grape crop will return to normal levels thanks to good rainfall hot on the heels of a three year-long drought. The size and quality of the 2019 grape crop was further influenced by weather conditions in the flowering period leading up to harvest, together with the vineyards’ ability to recover from the drought.
The dry, warm conditions that dominated the 2018 harvest season, have persisted in the post-harvest period, which has had a positive effect on leaf drop and the accumulation of essential reserves.
We experienced good cold conditions during the winter and rainfall was higher than previous year. Spring has set in earlier, and the vines initially started to bud earlier than normal. In September, temperature fluctuations delayed vine growth however, and in certain cultivars resulted in late and uneven bud burst. Rain in September led to increase management inputs with regard to canopy and fungal disease management. By the end of September, temperatures rose again with subsequent good vine growth.

Aging Potential
Enjoy right now or age up to 5 years. Bottled with a natural cork , in order to ensure a flawless aging capacity. Ideal serving temperature between 10-12°C.

Food Matches
A wonderful choice with herb-driven sauces over chicken, tofu or fish dishes, matched with feta or chèvre, and paired with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine.This Sauvignon Blanc with its herbaceous notes pairs well with similar green herbs. If it has parsley, rosemary, basil, cilantro or mint, chances are our Sauvignon Blanc will make a great pairing.
