Delheim Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Green apple notes evolve into a melange of tropical fruit aromas: mango, peach and paw-paw, supported by underlying hints of green limes. The palate is fresh with a balanced acidity which compliments the green citrus and lemongrass flavours. A sleek minerality and chalkiness adds to the complexity, with a fresh and fruity finish.

in the cellar : The grapes were handpicked, de-stemmed, crushed and gently pressed. The juice was naturally settled and then cold-fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks with the aid of selected yeast strains. The wine was kept on the lees for a couple of months to aid in the mouthfeel and complexity thereof. Lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling. Vegan friendly – no animal proteins were used during the fining processes.
