Spier Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2016

R59.00

SOIL
Deep alluvial and decomposed granite soils.

TASTING NOTES
Pale gold with fresh lime green flashes around the edge. Aromas of full tropical fruit, yellow pepper, and herbal fynbos grassiness. Green pineapple, good balance of fruit and acidity, zippy.

VINIFICATION
Grapes hand harvested from selected vineyard blocks. Grapes received at cellar, de-stemmed, slightly crushed before pressing, given short skin contact and pressed. Free run juice settles in tank overnight. The following morning, the clear settled juice, of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) are racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation is temperature controlled. Only the best tanks are selected for the final preparation of the blend according to the style of the wine. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance, prior preparation for bottling. This wine is not oaked.

WHEN TO DRINK
Enjoy with Hot Smoked Trout with Dill mayonnaise, Tuna Carpaccio, Squid Ink Pasta with chili and garlic.
