Spier - Signature Sauvignon Blanc 2015Tropical Aromas
Pale gold with fresh lime green flashes around the edge.
Aromas of full tropical fruit, yellow pepper, and herbal fynbos grassiness.
Green pineapple, good balance of fruit and acidity, zippy.
Grapes hand harvested from selected vineyard blocks. Grapes received at cellar, de-stemmed, slightly crushed before pressing, given short skin contact and pressed. Free run juice settles in tank overnight.
The following morning, the clear settled juice, of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) are racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation is temperature controlled.
Only the best tanks are selected for the final preparation of the blend according to the style of the wine.
