DOUGLAS GREEN SAUVIGNON BLANC, SOUTH AFRICA

Fresh & frisky dry white packed with personality
Wine of Origin Western Cape (Robertson, Bonnievale, Wellington,
Breedekloof, Stellenbosch, Darling)
Vintage notes
outstanding for white varietals with a long ripening period
yielding Sauvignon Blanc with loads of varietal personality, grace and
natural balance. The grapes for this wine come from cooler pockets
in Robertson, Bonnievale, Breedekloof and Wellington regions where
exceptional phenolic ripeness is achieved.
Cellar notes
The grapes were handled separately in appointed cellars under the
care and control of our Oenologist. Each parcel was fermented at 13°C
and left on the fine lees for extra character and complexity. Particular
regional selection allows for added complexity and dimension by final
blending of components in our cellars in Wellington.
Tasting notes
Pale gold with a vibrant green tinge. Overt pineapple, gooseberry and
granadilla aromas carry through to a crisp dry entry and a surge of
tangy tropical flavours that finish with a feisty acidity and delicate
citrus twang.
Serving notes
A light bodied effortless dry white that is delicious served well chilled
as a refreshing aperitif or easy drinking quaffer. Great with any sushi,
fish or seafood as well as lemon and herb chicken, pesto inspired
Italian dishes or fresh asparagus and green salads.
Best enjoyed within 2 years of vintage.
