The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021 has an inviting nose with aromas of pear, papaya, gooseberries, and kiwi fruit that leads to a palate with beautiful concentration and texture. The natural acidity lends an incredible sense of minerality and purity to the wine.
This wine goes well with salads, lighter summer dishes and seafood, or enjoy on its own on a nice summer day.
Cooler conditions during early spring, coupled with moderate summer temperatures resulted in a slower start to the season. The cooler season and longer hang-time resulted in more concentrated aromatics and incredible natural acidities, which has given the wines beautiful purity. The higher acidities have also given us the freedom to do skin contact on all our components and to use the lees to add texture post-ferment. The idea with this wine is to balance the natural minerality and greener notes we get from our cooler sites, with beautiful tropical flavours from our slightly warmer and more exposed vineyards.
