Welmoed Heyden's Courage White 2009
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.
