Aristea Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Elgin, 2017

Lot: 1058 Supplier: ARISTEA Country/Region: South Africa /Elgin Major Grape: Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon and Semillon grapes were sourced from the cool region of Elgin to produce this new wine that was recently launched. Pale in colour, it has aromas of lime, lime blossom with a finish of fresh green leaves. It is initially soft on the palate developing a crisp and mouth-watering acidity with herbal flavours, blackcurrant, mellow oak and a mineral finish. Grapes were pressed, the clear juice racked into barrels and left for a natural fermentation to occur. It is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon, each fermented separately in 500-litre barrels-the Sauvignon with 25% new and 75% second fill, the Semillon in one second fill 500L barrel. The oak is unobtrusive and perfectly integrated.
