These grapes are blended with grapes from Darling to create the very fresh wine.The Koetshuis Sauvignon Blanc grapes are handled differently in the vineyards as well as in the cellar to ensure a bigger and a bolder wine.
The result is a wine that is stylistically different to our De Grendel Sauvignon Blanc in the sense that the wine leans more towards a fuller and richer style, with intense hints of minerality, gooseberries and green pepper on the nose and palate. Supported by a fresh acidity this wine is a full bodied white wine with a strong and long finish. The nose exudes fragrant sweet honeysuckle nuanced by pear and granny smith apple before subtle aromas of nettle and pea assert with a subtle steely mineral element.
Personal Food pairing:
A perfect partner for zesty citrus sauced white fish, tart goats’ cheese, and fresh green salads dressed with vinaigrette while young; with a bit of age however, slightly richer seafood dishes with a touch of cream would be sublime.
