Food Pairings for Welmoed Heyden's Courage White
Medium to full bodied wine. Good balance between fresh primary fruit, grassy notes of the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon components, followed by some tropical aromas of the Viognier and Verdelho. Elegant, rich palate supported by some clever use of oak and extended lees contact of some of the components fermented in barrel. Beautiful finish.
Notes: Fruit sourced from the Stellenbosch and Darling regions. Sauvignon Blanc and Gewurtztraminer fermented in stainless steel tank, unoaked, while the Semillon, Verdelho, Viognier and Chardonnay components were fermented, separately, in second and third fill French oak barrels, kept on its primary fermentation lees for 12 months, battonage. The tank components were kept on its fine lees for 12 months before blending.
