Zevenwacht Z 360° Sauvignon Blanc 2019
|Ageing||Most certainly delicious now but matures beautifully for up to 3 years.|
|BlendPercent||85% Sauvignon Blanc, 15% Semillon|
For the final 360° 2019 selection, we used 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% barrel fermented Semillon. The Sauvignon Blanc was tank-fermented at 14°. The wine spent 8 months on the fine lees with monthly stirring for the first 6 months. The 15% wooded Semillon gives the wine mid-palate weight, length with an oily lime finish, beautiful mouthfeel, concentration and flavor that develops as the wine ages in bottle.
|FoodSuggest||An enticing accompaniment to fresh mouthwatering tropical fruit skewers or with seafood such as seared tuna served with rocket and green mango, calamari or crayfish with lemon butter. Invent a tantilizing combination of your own to complement the complexity of this Sauvignon Blanc.|
|Vineyard||South facing and elevated 340 meters above sea level, these 20-year-old vines look out over False Bay and are planted on the coolest site on our farm. The soil is mainly decomposed granite with clay subsoil helping to buffer the vines during stress. The grapes from this site derive the full benefit from the cool sea breeze during the slow ripening stages. Pungency, aroma and full concentration are the hallmark of this fine Sauvignon Blanc. There is no shortage of these varietal characteristics on these lofty southern slopes.|
