Winemaker's notes:
Cloned from French plant material, the vines are grafted onto Richter 99 and Richter 110 rootstocks and grow in Tukulu soils. The vines are vertically trellised on hedge systems of varying height according to vigour. They receive supplementary irrigation through a drip system when necessary. The south-west facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for a concentrated intensity of flavour.
The grapes were harvested by hand at the end of January, between 22° to 23,5° Balling. They were then crushed and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks between 13° and 15° C.
Colour: Bright with tints of green. Bouquet: Tropical fruit and green figs are backed by a hint of green pepper and asparagus.
Taste: Crisp and refreshing with prominent tropical fruit and green fig flavours that linger long after the last sip.

Nice Legs
From the Reading Room
The ruvilets of wine that roll down the inside of the glass after a wine has been swirled are called legs in UK and USA. The Spanish call them tears; the Germans - church windows. Some wine drinkers look for great legs, falsely believing that nicely shaped legs )and who knows what that means) ...

Забележителен совиньон, има си всичко, което може ад се очаква от първокласен совиньон блан и то в изобилие. Вече го има и в Метро и Карфур и струва към 18 лв.
