Sauvignon blanc

Type
Dry white wine

Origin
Coastal Region

Grape Variety
100% Sauvignon Blanc

Description
The fresh breeze from the Atlantic Ocean cools the grapes, causing slow ripening that gives maximum flavor development. Intense aromas of gooseberry, white peach and red currant supported by the full ripe flavors of fig and guava and a long limey finish. To be enjoyed on its own or with salads, shellfish, fish or poultry dishes.

Winemaker's note
The grapes are hand sorted and then destemmed before gentle pressing. Cool fermentation (14-17°C) with selected imported yeasts. Post fermentation, the wine is matured on lees for 3 months at regulated temperatures in stainless steel tanks for further creamy complexity.
