Doolhof Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Signatures of Doolhof Range
Pale yellow to clear with a light green tinge in colour. The wine is dominated by lovely tropical notes with underlying green figs and goosberries on the nose. It is underlined with a core of mineral flavours. A crisp line of acidity carries the wine beautifully, with a fresh and lingering finish.
The grapes were harvested at night and processed reductively to preserve flavours and aromas. After settling out all rough lees, the juice was racked and inoculated with a commercially selected yeast strain and fermented between 13 and 15 degrees Celsius for about a month before some lees contact followed by clarifying and bottling in May 2017.
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
Total Acidity: 7.1 g/l
Residual Sugar: 3.7 g/l
Serve with shellfish, mussels in a creamy white wine sauce, delicate fish, oysters as an aperitif, and also a great companion at any picnic.
