Sauvignon Republic Cellars Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2005
Classic pale-straw color with rich pineapple, grapefruit, and tropical fruit layers and a touch of herbal “green” Sauvignon notes. Multiple vineyard sources allowed the assembly of a blend that showcases fruitiness and refreshing acidity supported by a surprising richness and length of finish.
A classic sauv. blanc. Nose: citrus, pineapple, grass. Body: light, with just enough acidity to clear the palate. Palate: gentle combination of lemon, grapefruit, with hints of grass (not too vegetal, though) and other fruits. Finish: quick Secondary Fermentation: no, and not needed. Pair this with any of the classic white wine foods: a double-cream brie, trout almandine, chicken in a light cream sauce.
