Kanu Sauvignon Blanc 2003

Veritas 2003 - Bronze
Pale straw in colour with a green tinge. Hints of gooseberry, guava, freshly cut green grass, nettle and green pepper on the nose. Good balance between natural fruit sugars and acid, resulting in a crisp, clean finish. Packed with flavours of bell peppers and crushed rosemary. Drinking well now, but will gain in intricacy with bottle maturation.

Serve at 12 – 15°C. Ideal with salads; quiche Lorraine; mussel and perlemoen paella; grilled calamari; fresh line fish; mushroom risotto; chicken a’la king; and stir fried or roasted vegetables.

about the harvest: The grapes were hand picked in the early morning to ensure coolness, and then lightly crushed.

in the cellar : Only free-run juice was used and reductive winemaking techniques protected the fresh fruit flavours. The must was then cool fermented with a cultured yeast strain. The wine was lightly filtered before being bottled.
There was no wood aging.
