Product guide note

This wine is made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape which produces crisp, mouth-watering wines with powerful gooseberry and citrus flavours. However, because it’s from a hot country it also has some tropical fruit flavours.

Production note

The whole berries were pressed gently in a pneumatic press. After a first racking, the must was transferred to temperature-controlled fermentation vats. The wine stayed on the lees for at least 8 months before bottling, 10 to 11 months after the harvest.
