Nederburg Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2001

The International Wine & Spirit Competition 2002 - Bronze
Generous on the palate, this Reserve wine has a splendid mouthfeel, a weighty luscious palate where exotic passion fruit, peach and gooseberry flavours are in perfect balance. The wine has ripe, sweet unoaked fruit with a flinty edge and yet an elegant, dry finish. Perfect companion to seafoods and creamy fish or chicken dishes, mushroom, asparagus or any white dishes.

AWARDS
The International Wine & Spirit Competition 2002 - Bronze

ageing : Drinkable now but with room for growth.

in the vineyard : The fruit for this hugely rewarding Sauvignon Blanc comes from the best terroir and cooler slopes.

in the cellar : Only 20 000 litres of varietal purity enhanced by reductive, minimalistic winemaking were produced. A low fruit yield (averaging five tons per hectare) is the guarantee of a wine ranging in flavour from grass to asparagus and tropical fruit, full of herbaceous fragrance, gooseberry and tropical tones.
