Hidden Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (6/case) (R119/BOTTLE)
Subtle tropical aromas on this classic Sauvignon blanc nose lead to a delicate palate layered with guava, a hint of lime and long lingering minerality.
Our vineyard blocks were harvested at different levels of ripeness to ensure complexity of flavour and fresh, delicate acidity. The fruit was picked early in the morning to preserve aroma; kept cold, and pressed on arrival at the cellar. The resulting juice was treated reductively, while keeping oxygen out and preserving the delicate flavours. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures and then kept on the lees for a further 6 weeks to enhance mouth feel.
