Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2008

The grapes for this wine comes from a single south-west facing vineyard block high on the Helderberg mountain, where the fruit was picked very early in the morning to preserve flavours. The juice was treated reductively, keeping oxygen out and preserving the delicate flavours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures and the wine was kept on the lees, with stirring for another three months to gain more complexity. Tasting note: This Sauvignon Blanc shows exceptional tropical melon, passion fruit, guava aromas and freshly picked garden herbs that follow through to a smooth and full palate. The palate is layered with sweet gooseberries, nettle and faintly mineral notes. This wine has the weight to stand up to flavourful dishes and has good ageing potential.
