Winemaker's Notes:

INGENUITY 2007 WHITE BLEND Ingenuity is Nederburg's platform for innovation and houses exciting new blends made from lesser known varietals or those combined in interesting new ways. VINEYARDS: The Ingenuity white blend features more varietals than any wine in South Africa. The eight-way blend is big and bold, reined in by some judicious wooding and structured to age for up to 10 years. It is led by sauvignon blanc (40%) sourced from Groenekloof and Durbanville, offering herbaceous aromas and crisp minerally, green flavours. The next biggest components are Chardonnay (20%), Viognier (15%) both from Durbanville and super-ripe bush-vine Chenin blanc (10%) from Darling. The balance is made up by Semillon (6%), Nouvelle (3%), Weisser riesling (3%) and Verdelho (3%). WINEMAKING: Of the Sauvignon blanc a small portion (6%) was fermented in French barriques. The Chardonnay was fermented and aged in new French 228-litre barrels, while the Verdelho and Nouvelle each spent five months in second-fill French oak. WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS: Flavour and Taste: A big and bold wine. Creamy textured with a core of racy acid. An amalgam of herbaceous, peach, floral and wood characters. When well-chilled the wine presents a crisp Sauvignon blanc profile but when lightly chilled the creamy oak vanillins come to the fore, with its spice and tannin characters giving it enough body and grip to match well with red meat dishes. Food pairing: Multi-layered dishes with a complexity of flavours, such as quail, duck, gunea fowl, rabbit, free range chicken or top-grade beef, prepared with spice, fruit and citrus seasonings. CHEMICAL ANALYSIS: Alcohol: 14.02% by volume. Residual sugar: 3.47g/l Total acidity: 7.00g/l pH : 3.29
