Signatures of Doolhof Sauvignon Blanc 2009

A fresh, crisp wine combining tropical flavours with green pepper and asparagus undertones.
The grapes from an east-facing slope were harvested in different stages of ripeness to make to different wines, one with grass, asparagus and green pepper aromas and the other wine with tropical fruit aromas.  This has resulted in a complex melange of passion fruit and guava, with green pepper and asparagus undertones.  A fresh, crisp and exciting wine bottled in April 2009.

An excellent apéritif wine or paired with white fish and crustaceans.
