Nitida Decorous Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Durbanville is well known for its Sauvignon Blanc. Over the years we have made Sauvignon Blanc to have a broader appeal in the market. With this wine we have looked for characteristics that are aimed at purist consumers of Sauvignon Blanc who are looking for a racy, expressive wine. We have held this wine back for a year to allow the wine to further develop in the bottle and show its full potential. The grapes saw a late start with delayed budding from a cold and wet September with daily temperatures well below 25 degrees. We managed our vine canopies to maximise thiols, always mindful to not compromise our characteristic high Durbanville pyrazines. We selected grapes carefully from specific vineyards and these were kept separate throughout the processing before the wine was finally blended from our 2 favourite tanks. Tasting note: Inspires a myriad of impressions. Lemon meringue with gooseberries, Seville oranges and Bramley apples. Minerally nettles with just a pinch of Provence herbs. Essential with a snoek beach braai or lunchtime rocket and parmesan salad at the pool Drink this year and in 2012.
