6 Bottles x 750ml
Se'millon Sauvignon Blanc 2017
This formidable white blend is named after winemaker Rikus Neethling's
mother Henrietta, and shares many of the qualities he admires in her. It is
vibrant and refreshing yet rened and layered, with intricate avours that
constantly evolve in the bottle, giving this wine outstanding longevity.
VITICULTURE AND VINIFICATION
The grapes have been specially selected from the Franschoek region to create
a perfectly complementary avour prole and balance between the Sémillon
and Sauvignon Blanc. All these grapes have been harvested early morning to
preserve the natural aromas. Only the best grape bunches are selected through
careful quality sorting at the cellar. After the press process is complete, the juice
is directly poured into barrels. Once inside the barrels, natural fermentation
takes place and the wine is left on the primary yeast sediment for 7 months
before being racked clean and bottled.
This intruiging wine shows wisps of orange peel on the palate, fresh tropical
fruit aromas and a delicate aftertaste derived from being matured in oak
barrels for 7 months. It is well balanced with juicy fruit, bright acidity and a
inty minerality. Enjoy with a variety of dishes like shellsh, vegetable salads
and mild chicken curries.
