Elgin Valley Yellow Lorry Sauvignon Blanc 2010

The Yellow Lorry Sauvignon Blanc is an easy drinking wine with a cool climate character which is typically Elgin. It has a very good structure, complexity and balance. There is an abundance of fruit with lemons and apples on the nose, a slightly sweeter taste and a good acidity for a lingering finish.

Very drinkable on it's own or with light meat dishes. An excellent partner for seafood dishes.

about the harvest: The objective was to make a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc which could be a fun and easy quaffing wine. The grapes were hand harvested cold in the early hours of the morning.

in the cellar : The grapes were crushed and gently bag pressed to extract the best juice. The juice was settled for 3 days before racking to stainless steel tanks where it underwent a cold fermentation for 5 weeks. The wine was left on the lees for 6 weeks before cold and protein stabilization and bottling with screw caps.
