Ridgeback Sauvignon Blanc
- Sauvignon Blanc 100%
All grapes were handpicked at vine ripeness
- Rich, expressive Paarl Viognier and low yielding tropical Sauvignon Blanc were hand selected and night harvested to preserve the delicate flavours typical to Paarl Mountain.
- The Sauvignon Blanc was fermented in stainless steel tanks and ferment lasted 21 days at 14- 16C . The initial ferment started naturally and after 3 degrees Balling a commercial yeast strain was inoculated to ensure that the ferment ran to dryness. Ferment lasted for 15 days at 18 0 C.
- The wine was lightly filtered prior to bottling.
An upfront, tropical array of juicy white peach, pineapple and orange blossom with a hint of citrus.
