The grapes were sourced from Bloemendal and Morgenster farms where the vineyards are all trellised to ensure perfect bunch positioning protecting the fruit from direct sunlight. The soft, radiated heat allowed for the gradual ripening of the fruit resulting in an abundance of flavour. The winter preceding the 2014 vintage was wet and cold and the crucial flavour producing ripening period for Sauvignon Blanc grapes was cool and dry resulting in very healthy grapes with small berries with concentrated flavour.
Delightful combination of citrus, paw-paw, asparagus, ripe figs and watermelon. Medium-bodied wine with subtle citrus and tropical fruit on the palate ending with a long, lingering finish.
Serve on its own slightly chilled or with smoked haddock, tempura-battered prawns, stir-fried calamari, asparagus quiche, ratatouille and Thai noodle salads.
