Erika O
Sauvignon Blanc
2017

Fruit from a dry land farmed 20-year-old vineyard in Groenekloof, Darling planted on deep red Hutton soils. Partly wooded (70 % unoaked fermented in Stainless Steel tanks, 30 % fermented and matured for 5 months in 1st and 2nd fill 500 li French Oak barrels).

An elegant Sauvignon with concentrated fruit purity, this wine has a superbly complex nose featuring a floral top note followed by blackcurrant, passion fruit, lime and grapefruit interspersed with subtle notes of fynbos. The palate is generous with broad layers of flavour. A vibrant acidity lends balance, while the finish is long and savoury. Impressive structure and intensity with the ageing potential of a cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.
