Fountain of Youth Sauvignon Blanc 2018

A wine grown high up on the foothills of the Groenlandberg in Elgin. Oak Valley 'Fountain of Youth' Sauvignon Blanc expresses fruit aromas of passion fruit, white peach and litchi with a slight herbaceous undertone. Flavours of passion fruit persist on the palate, particularly granadilla, lemons, white pear, gooseberry and a lovely saline finish that reminds one of fresh oyster shells or sea salt.

in the vineyard : With the cool climate of Elgin resulting in a delayed ripening time, our Sauvignon Blanc is allowed to mature in the vineyard where other warmer regions do not have this luxury.

in the cellar : Reductive wine making with cool fermentation temperatures results in a wine bursting with beautiful depth of fruit.
