Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2009

The white wines of Waterford Estate are single vineyard wines while the red wines are made and blended to reflect the terroir of the Estate. The Waterford label was launched in 1998 with a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay was added a year later. In 2004 the vineyards and property was registered as an estate and the labels were changed to Waterford Estate.

Apples and slight tropical fruit on the nose. Backed up by some minerality. Very smooth on the palate and quite full bodied. Really well balanced and good length on the finish.

Serve with grilled yellowtail and roast vegetable, feta and couscous salad.
