Waterford Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Waterford was established in 1998 with the intention of producing the very best wines in the country. The 120-hectare wine farm, is situated between the Simonsberg and Heldeberg mountain ranges and is a joint venture between Jeremy Ord and Kevin Arnold. Jeremy Ord made a fortune in information technology while Kevin Arnold established a reputation as one of South Africas leading winemakers during his tenure at Rust en Vrede. The Waterford label was launched in 1998 with a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Sauvignon Blanc. The Chardonnay was added a year later. In 2004 the vineyards and property was registered as an estate and the labels were changed to Waterford Estate. This Sauvignon is clear and bright, with excellent colour for Sauvignon Blanc. Juicy quince and gooseberry aromas fill the nose. Steely minerality up front gives way to a creamy, yeasty mouthfeel. Long finish, a great food wine. Serve with grilled yellowtail and roast vegetable, feta and couscous salad

Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Waterford : Sauvignon Blanc 2008 - Weißwein von Waterford WinesMit frischer Passionsfrucht und Litschi, die von feinen Hefenoten getragen werden, präsentiert sich dieser Sauvignon Blanc. Am Gaumen wirkt er herrlich rein, frisch und voller Eleganz. Der Sauvignon Blanc 2008 von Waterford Wines ist ein gut ausgewogener Weißwein mit einem lang anhaltenden Finale. Mit zunehmender Lagerung in der Flasche entwickelt er eine feine Cremigkeit. Der Wein macht Avocadosalat mit Krustentieren oder gedünsteten weißen Fisch zum kulinarischen Erlebnis.Weingut: Waterford WinesLand: SüdafrikaRegion: StellenboschRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,0 g/lRestsüße: 3,25 g/lLagerfähgikeit: 2-4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °CAuszeichnungen für den Waterford Sauvignon Blanc 2008:4 Platter Stars Weißwein > Südafrika > Stellenbosch
