Villiera Down to Earth White 2008

Villiera Down to Earth White 2008

This Down to Earth White demonstrates the art of blending. It was created by drawing on years of experience with blending Sauvignon Blanc. To improve complexity we required an additional component and Semillon was the obvious choice. After careful attention to blending these components we achieved the required result, with fresh gooseberries and passion fruit from the Sauvignon Blanc. The Semillon contributes the more herbaceous, grassy character as well as complexity to the palate. The wine is balanced with good length, but above all it makes you reach for another glass.
In the production process we limited the use of additives and avoided all animal products resulting in a wine that is suitable for vegetarians.
