Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Equal parts complex and oh-so-compatible, the nose reveals aromas of blackcurrant and passion fruit. The palate is fresh and intense – with hints of lime, rounded off by a wonderful texture and a notable mineral finish.
Only the first run off juice is used for this wine. A cold fermentation at 12 – 14 degrees Celcius is completed and the wine then spends a further five months on its lees in tanks before bottling.
Although this vintage has just been released, Uitsig’s previous Sauvignon Blanc was awarded a silver in the Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards, and a noteworthy 4 stars in John Platter’s Guide.
