Sauvignon Blanc 2021 Grape variety: Sauvignon BlancWine of Origin: Cape Coast
Vineyards: The trellised vineyards are planted in shale soils to provide a refreshing acidity to the palate with green harvesting providing complexity. Meticulous attention to canopy management and water supply provides the wine with the ultimate balance.
Vinification: Only the free–run juice is cold fermented in stainless steel tanks using a combination of wild and cultured yeasts. The wine is left on the lees for a number of weeks to fill out the mid-palate. This Sauvignon Blanc is handled with care in the cellar in order to capture its natural fruit flavours and drive complexity resulting in a food friendly wine.
Tasting notes: Clean, crisp and fresh with layers of tropical fruits such as gooseberry, litchi and passion fruit and the extended lees contact providing for a fuller, weightier mouth-feel yet still finishing in the lively, bright aftertaste.
Food pairing suggestion: The younger the wine, the better it will suit cold meats, antipasti and grilled seafood. As the wine develops, it will reward patience with a rich wine perfectly suited to pair with slow-cooked casseroles and saucy pasta.
