Black Oystercatcher, Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Wine of the Week until Wed 12th May
A superb cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc from the southernmost tip of the African continent.
Refreshing, balanced and extremely mineral with noticeable maritime characteristics and a long complex finish.
From the most Southern tip of Africa and the cool climate tip of Africa. The Cape Agulhas region with close proximity to the ocean produces wines that are elegant, mineral and natural in texture.
The grapes were harvested in three separate hand pickings to ensure a full spectrum of complexity, contributing to the flavour of this wine. To ensure the best quality wines, only free run juice was used. Cold fermentation with specially selected yeast strains and extended lees contact were given, for a lingering mouth feel and good ageing potential.
The perfect wine to enjoy with seafood, particularly oysters.
