Waterlily | Sauvignon Blanc 2019
R95 / 750ml
A fragrant wine with notes of tropical fruit, lemon zest and green pepper. The wine shows a brilliant and clear, green-tinged colour. The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering mineral-rich mouth-feel.
Grapes are hand-harvested from 15-year-old vines on the slopes of the Kanonberg mountains. The bunches are pressed whole and then left overnight with the enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are inoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 12°C. The wine is sparged daily to remove dissolved oxygen from the wine. The wine is then stabilised and bottled.
