Raka Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Raka Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Appearance: Clear, lime green in colour.
Wine Style: Dry.
Bouquet and Palate: This is a crisp, elegant and fresh Sauvignon blanc with citrus and mineral tones on the nose. On the palet the wine is fruitier with gooseberry  and lemon characters;  these follow trough  to a dry integrated acidity.

Served well chilled, this wine is well suited to any seafood and cold meats. Also delightful on its own!

about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked

in the cellar : After harvesting, all grapes were sorted before being crushed directly in to the press where skin contact was allowed for 8 hours. Pure yeast cultures were inoculated in the juice after pressing in order to optimize the fermentation process at around 16°C. Extended lees contact was allowed after fermentation and the wine was allowed to naturally clarify under gravity prior to filtering and bottling.
