Nitida Decorous Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaking Notes A cold and wet budding season led to a perfect long, cool ripening period. This, plus vigilant canopy management and mild stress in the vineyard from dry conditions gave us enviable flavour complexity. The 2009 Decorous is made from our favourite tank of grapes, harvested from a single vineyard on the farm. We picked on flavour looking for our wonderful steely Durbanville pyrazines with just enough tropical flavours to give a balanced full mouthfeel. Healthy grapes meant we could allow 24 hours of skin contact extracting maximum varietal aromas. Decorous is made from only free run juice which is protected and cared for throughout in the very pedantic Nitida way. Tasting Notes A wine to entertain all your senses. Racy, nettle and herb driven nose leads to delicious pyrazine grass and mushy peas on the palate, with super tones of soft pineapple, gooseberries and winter melon. The finish is all distinctive Nitida – full, lovely taut acid with lingering khakibos.
