Upper Hemel en Aarde Sauvignon Blanc 2022

A vibrant green heart with a lime green rim.
Mélange of kiwi, gooseberries, fresh passion fruit, flint (as in mineral tones) and white fig.
Beautiful mouth feel with a long fruit packed finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The cooled grapes are hand sorted , destemmed and pressed to settle and clear overnight. The settled juice is then inoculated and fermented at cool temperatures to ensure complex compounded flavours that develop over an extended fermentation period.
- Growing Conditions
From our vineyards overlooking Walker Bay, at the foothills of the Babylonstoren mountains. Two different vineyards, one called Murasie (ruin) and a second batch from a selection of Sauvignon Blanc vines from the Vine Garden Vineyard. We always vinify a batch of Semillon from one of our highest altitude vineyards -and sometimes -as in 2021 -the wine is used to lift the blend.
- Food Pairing
An ideal aperitif but it also pairs well with a green vegetable medley, seafood, goat’s cheese or crisp salads.
