Wine Suggestion:

Yonderhill Y-Sauvignon Blanc 2016

This wine is made from a specially selected vineyard in Stellenbosch.  The vines are 18 years old and the canopy was opened to produce more thiols (tropical flavours) and less pyrazines (grass flavours).  When thiols increase, the wine has more prominent tropical flavours, while a decrease in pyrazines lessens the green grass aromas.  The wine is made in a reductive style to retain the fresh, fruity flavours of the grapes.

It is an easy drinking wine with aromas of tropical fruit flavours like gooseberries, litchis and guava. The pallet is balanced with a full fruity taste and a fine crisp finish.

Price: R50 per bottle.
