Upper Hemel en Aarde Sauvignon Blanc
Varieties: Sauvignon Blanc (91%), Semillon (9%)
Region: Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley
Country: South Africa
Bottle size: 750 mL
Eyes: Vibrant green heart with lime green rim.
Nose: Mélange of kiwi, gooseberries, fresh passion fruit, flint (as in mineral tones) and vegetal notes (“fynbos” characters).
Mouth: Beautiful mouth feel with a long fruit packed, persistent finish.
Recommended food pairings: One of the wines on the list one could happily have on its own as aperitif but pairs well with salads and meals with chicken or fish. A wine which will enliven any meal.
Winemaker: Corlea Fourie
Growing conditions: From our vineyards overlooking Walker Bay, at the foothills of the Babylonstoren mountains. Two different vineyards, one called Murasie and a second batch from a selection of Sauvingon Blanc from the Vine Garden Vineyard. High density Semillon planting adds a drop of complexity.
Winemaking notes: The cooled grapes are pressed using reductive measures. The settled juice is then inoculated and fermented at cool temperatures to ensure complex compounded flavours that develop over an extended fermentation period.
