Rickety Bridge Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Rickety Bridge Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Delightful nose with mango, papaya and passion fruit dominant. Crisp and refreshing on the palate with nuances of stone fruit, guava and a subtle minerality which lingers on the finish.

Seafood dishes, fresh leafy salads and sushi.

about the harvest: The Sauvignon blanc grapes were harvested by hand at 22.5° B with good harvesting conditions through out. Perfect harvesting conditions with long cool, dry summer.

in the cellar : Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at 12° C with two noble yeast strains used. The wine was left on its primary lease for 6 months being stirred twice a week to enhance flavours and mouth feel.
