Louis Nel Buckleberry Sauvignon Blanc 2015

Louis Nel Buckleberry Sauvignon BlancBlend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

The name Buckleberry is derived from the hometown of Kate Middleton, and the concept was purposefully done to show the exuberance and outgoing nature of the wine.

Winemaking procedure
The wine was purposely fermented very cold to ensure that as much flavours as possible is formed and preserved during fermentation. At higher fermentation temperatures nice flavours that are formed are often blown off, and cold fermentation prevents that. Fruit , fruit, fruit, fruit, tropical fruit all over with a yummy soft palate full of flavour, and softness and fullness all over the place.
