Eikendal Blanc 2009

The Eikendal Blanc well-balanced blend of
Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, with a lively
acidity. The nose has a fruity fresh aroma with a
touch of fresh, green notes. Careful blending has
created a wine with youthful elegance and a crisp,
refreshing finish. The lower alcohol on this wine
makes for lovely drinking.

This wine is perfect to enjoy with a light salad, apicnic with summer fair, or just on it’s own as anaperitif.

about the harvest: 2009 is going down in the history books as the vintage
of the century for Sauvignon Blanc and other whites,
with a cold and wet winter in 2008 and a moderate
spring and dryer summer leading up the harvest.
Great care was taken to preserve the natural grape
flavours, by picking at cool temperatures and cooling
of the must before pressing.
