This Sauvignon Blanc is pale lemon-green with vibrant aromas of apple blos-som, green melon, stone fruit and delicate hints of lemon verbena, elderflow-er and grapefruit. The palate is lively and textured – and shows more tropical fruits flavours of pineapple, pear, papaya, greengage, even gooseberry. The mid-palate is round and smooth with a refreshingly tangy yet integrated acidi-ty. It finishes with white peach, green fig and lemongrass lingering in the mouth with hints of nettles and chalk – perfect for summer.
The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes harvested from vineyards in Robertson, Stellenbosch and as far afield as the West Coast. These vineyards are picked at different ripeness levels to achieve a wine that is supple and round, yet focused, with balanced acidity. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature conditions prior to blending. The 2021 vintage was plentiful and provided healthy fruit with a classic Sauvignon Blanc profile. No acidification during any stage of vinification.
