Hazendal Sauvignon Blanc 2004

Lovely asparagus aromas which are well translated to the palate where there is a perfect balance between acid and fruit. Bright pale straw with youthful green tints. Creamy palate.

Pruning takes place during winter months of June and July. Maintain very modern techniques and have a rigorous environmental friendly system called PWC to which we must comply, therefore we are not allowed to use chemicals that don’t comply to EU regulations as far as safety period before picking, types of chemicals, dosages and time of year application.
