STONEDALE SAUVIGNON BLANC 2017

Stonedale Sauv

VITICULTURE

The vines are planted on southeast facing slopes in rich limy soil. They are all trellised and under micro irrigation and were established from 1983 to 1999.

WINEMAKING
The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are picked in different stages of ripeness in order to capture the green, grassy flavours of the earlier, “greener” fruit and then later the more tropical flavours of the ripe fruit. In the cellar the clean juice are inoculated with a special cultivated wine yeast and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks between 13 and 15°C till dry. After fermentation the wine is left on the fine lees for as long as possible before bottling.

THE WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS

This is a crisp, fruity Sauvignon Blanc with typical tropical flavours on the nose that follow through on the palate. The pallet also reveals a hint of minerality and a well balancing acidity resulting in a zesty, long-lasting aftertaste. A fresh, fruity dry wine for everyday enjoyment.

FOOD PAIRING & SERVING SUGGESTION

A perfect partner for any Seafood, salads and light meals. Ideal for outdoor picnics and no need for a corkscrew, it’s screw-cap! Serve chilled (7-10°C).
