Nitida CWG Selection Sauvignon Blanc 2006

The start of the growing season in Durbanville was much colder than usual, causing most bud burst occurred late. It remained cool throughout the growing period and together with the dryness of the season, this ensured well balanced canopies. As is our strategy, we picked our grapes from a number of different vineyards and vinified each separately. This year we have made our wine for the Auction from grapes off an East facing vineyard showed particular intensity and terroir character. Careful blending with a small amount of Semillon completed the picture. Tasting Note: This wine shows the intense personality of Sauvignon blanc grapes grown in cooler regions. It lives up to expectations with an instant impression of freshness, with white peach flesh and mushy peas, yielding quickly to a full bodied mid-palate featuring gooseberries, granadilla, honeysuckle, and ripe pear with intense New Zealand style pyrazine character. The finish is cool climate green peppers and freshly mown lawn. Firm, steely acids make this Sauvignon blanc a wonderful option with anything from a winter korma curry to fresh barbequed tuna on the beach.
