Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2020

A very focused style of Sauvignon blanc showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate notes confirming the Elgin origin of the grapes. The palate is finely textured with crisp fruit, fresh natural acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours. A wine showing the true expression of Elgin terroir on Sauvignon blanc.

Cheese (especially goat cheese), green vegetables (asparagus, zucchini, fresh peas, artichokes), oysters and delicate fish like sole.

in the vineyard : Mostly from a single producer in Elgin, 6 different blocks of Sauvignon Blanc are used to create various batches of wine to select from for the blend.
Cool climate with more chalky soils to add texture and salinity to the Sauvignon Blanc.

about the harvest: Good winter rains but still below the normal average. Odd warm days during winter but some snowfall during late winter / early spring along with some rain helped dam levels rise. These conditions also prepped for good, even budding to start the growing season.

During ripening the odd heat wave was experienced but overall lovely warm days and coolish nights allowed for perfect ripening and earlier picking dates. This resulting in lovely fresh, flavoured and rich wines with relatively low alcohol levels.
