Kumkani Lanner Hill Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification / oaking details: Fermented at a low temperature in stainless steel tanks for approximately 16 days. Kept on fine lees for two months. Viticultural details: The vineyard location seems tailor-made for flavor-intense grapes. The grapes grow in the Groenekloof region, near Darling. This area yields wines with an intense flavour and crispness not found in some of the more inland regions. Tasting notes: Expressive classic Sauvignon Blanc from a cool climate. Ripe gooseberry flavours, flinty and full-bodied with a lingering finish. Food suggestions: Enjoy with quality game, beef or lamb dishes and salad.

A lovely slice of 'green gooseberry' intensity with a mineral, flinty complexity http://www.spittoon.biz/in_the_company_of_wine_people.html
