2019 The Amos Block Sauvignon Blanc R125/bottle x 750 ml
Energetic, Fruity, Crisp
R375.00 – R750.00
Oldest Sauvignon Blanc bush vines in South Africa.
A feat for such a variety in the hot Swartland climate, this is the antithesis of Sauvignon Blanc. It has a wonderfully aromatic and energetic style, full of notes of fig, gooseberries, nettles with minerality and crisp acidity. It is bright and refreshing but with a lovely texture, making it more generous on the palate than you might expect.
The single vineyard was hand-harvested at 21,7-degree balling, with a natural acidity of 6.9g/l. The bunches were gently de-stalked, and the juice was pressed off and settled down for 48 hours, prior to fermentation. Cold fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks.
