Gretchen - Sauvignon Blanc
The brilliant crystal-clear color makes a refreshing and crisp statement.
Primary notes bursting of kiwi and white melon. Hints of guava and
granadilla complete the fruit profile. Balanced acidity and delicate fruit
tones on the mid-palate ensures a lingering finish.
The grapes were harvested by hand earlier this year into small 20kg cases. The
grapes were then transported in the cool of the morning to the cellar.
IN THE CELLAR
The grapes were hand tipped into the press for a long three-hour whole
bunch pressing session. After this, the juice was cold fermented for 3 weeks
in stainless steel tanks. Once dry, the wine was racked off its ferment lees
and aged for 6 months before being bottled.
IN THE VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine are sourced only from the coolest slopes in the
Western Cape, enabling only the best Sauvignon grape flavors to be
released into the wine.
Best enjoyed with chicken, pork, fish, shellfish, cheese and vegetarian
cuisine. This crispy and fresh palatable wine pairs well with a variety of fish
dishes, various salads, artichokes and asparagus. It is a match made in
heaven with lobster and crab curries.
Enjoy now or within 5 years from vintage.
