Slowine Chenin Blanc / Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Description

The ideal any time wine with its friendly fruity nature and easy texture; this is the wine for fresh grilled line fish, roasted Elgin free range chicken or white cheeses.

Vinification

The Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes we harvested individually each at their optimum ripeness levels. No skin contact was given to the Chenin Blanc or Semillon.

The Sauvignon Blanc was left on the skins for a limited time, to extract some more flavour.

The juice were settled over two days and fermented with a selected yeast strain known for producing lots of tropical fruit flavours. After fermentation the wine was blended, stabilized and bottled.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful aromas of guava, gooseberry and ripe tropical fruit tantalize the nose and follow through to a balanced mouthful that’s supple and refreshing.

Food pairing

Fresh grilled linefish with a hint of lemon, thyme roasted chicken and potatoes, oven roasted vegetables drizzled in olive oil and soft white cheeses.
