Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc

R80.00

Crisp yet generous with layers of tropical fruit, floral notes and hints of green pepper, this is a refreshingly dry Sauvignon Blanc. It is well-balanced with delicate acidity making it eminently drinkable all summer long.

HISTORY

The 10 hectare Sauvignon Blanc block was planted in 1981 which not only makes it our oldest vineyard,  but also covers the largest grape surface on the farm.

 

VINIFICATION

The grapes are brought into the cellar where they are gently destemmed and pressed. After fermentation at 13⁰C for 2 weeks, the wine is matured on the lees for 4 months to maintain its zippy, crisp green and tropical fruit flavours. TThe grapes are hand-picked at 22.5°balling. Early picking preserves the pyrazines (green flavours), that develop during the slow ripening period as a result of constant breezes and cooler temperatures. More fruit-forward grapes grown under warmer conditions add the tropical component to the wine.

 

SERVING SUGGESTION

Our Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc is a great companion to salads, light seafood dishes or grilled chicken.
