Butterfly ridge sauvignon blanc/semillon 2013
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon
The grapes for this wine are sourced from the Angove family's own Nanya vineyards and premium growers in the Riverland region in South Australia. Soils are predominantly red sandy loam over limestone, on gently undulating east-west ridges.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible, the grapes are transported to the winery and pressed using modern tank presses. After cold settling and careful racking, cold fermentation is followed by minimal handling and bottling at the Angove Winery.
Pale straw in colour with attractive green hues. The distinctive herbaceous and tropical characters typical of perfectly ripened Sauvignon Blanc leap from the glass followed by delicate citrus notes from the Semillon. These flow seamlessly onto the palate with crisp tropical fruit and a clean finish.
Good with almost everything but beef! Great with Asian or Moroccan flavours.
