Douglas Green Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Colour: Pale straw with a youthful green glimmer.
Nose: Enticing pineapple and granadilla layered with chalky mineral green pepper aromas.
Palate: Dry bracing crispness on entry followed by fresh tropical fruit intensity that is well integrated with a zesty acidity and a citrus fruit aftertaste.
Overall: A light-bodied dry white wine with bracing fruit flavours that refresh the palate and end with a delicate aftertaste.

Best served well chilled as an aperitif or with fresh oysters, grilled prawns, pan seared calamari, herbed chicken salads or smokedsalmon starters.

in the vineyard : Our viticulturalist selects grapes from specific cooler climate vineyards across the Western Cape for terroir specificity and typical fruit driven Douglas Green style.

about the harvest: The Sauvignon Blanc for this wine was harvested in 2 tries. The first batch was harvested early for herbaceous expressions and the second later at full phenolic ripeness for tropical fruit character.

in the cellar : The wine was made in appointed cellars under the watchful eye of our oenologist. Each vineyard block was vinified separately at
13°C until dry then left on the fine lees for added depth and dimension. Final blending and bottling took place at our cellars
in Wellington.
