Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Warm, dry weather conditions ensured a disease-free ripening period and resulted in a powerful, rich style of wine. 

Harvesting of the individual blocks took place from the first week of February until the beginning of March. The overall quality of the grapes this year was excellent, yielding complex, powerful wines. The blend was put together in May after roughly three months of lees contact. Bottling took place in Early July. 

Tasting Notes

Light green in appearance. Ripe tropical aromas of pineapple and passion fruit come to the fore, whilst the palate exhibits characteristic sauvignon blanc traits of pithy grapefruit zest and tight, mineral acidity. The lengthy finish is clean and invigorating. 

Maturation

Will mature in bottle up to 2019
