The Secretary Sauvignon Blanc is a tropical and juicy Sauvignon Blanc sourced from breezy coastal vineyards.
The winery receives the grapes before midday, basically because grapes are picked in the morning, before the vineyard becomes too warm. They are destemmed and crushed and go into strainers where the free run is pumped gently to tank. The Sauvignon Blanc is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at between 11C and 13C. T he ferment is likely to last around 10 days. The wine is racked after ferment and then kept on fine lees right up until bottling.
This Sauvignon Blanc from the Western Cape displays fresh, ripe yellow fruit flavours with a hint of waxy lime and plum stone, as well as some leafy herbal notes which makes for a zippy, racy and deeply quaffable drop.
Delicious with brightly-flavoured seafood dishes, thai salads, citrus dressings or indeed by the glass on its own!
