Fides Grenache Blanc
Varietal: Grenache Blanc
Country: South Africa
Bottle size: 750 mL
Eyes: Light golden amber.
Nose: Complex dried orange peel, marzipan, secondary fruit characters and a waxiness.
Mouth: A slight spiciness follows through to the palate. It finishes of with brisk minerality.
Recommended food pairings: A wine which will do justice to any rich fish dish and which will offset salty dishes such as parmesan crisps or tempura vegetables. It has enough complexity, weight and tannin to also carry heavier dishes.
Winemaker: Corlea Fourie
Growing conditions: Bush vines planted on decomposed granite soils from a vineyard called Kleinplasie, Groenfontein, Wellington.
Winemaking notes: The hand-harvested grapes were kept in cold storage overnight and destemmed. A natural ferment was underway within 2 days – it lasted for 4 weeks. At this point the tank was pressed in our basket press and 20% of the wine taken to new Russian oak.
