2015 was one of the earliest harvests in 30 years, a dry ripening season made for a
lighter, but very healthy crop. Grapes for the Radley & Finch Sauvignon blanc were sourced from a number of different areas. The Olifants river provided a green and fresher note whilst the riper and juicier came from the Stellenbosch, Swartland and Paarl areas.
The final blend contains 14% Chenin blanc.
The various areas and vineyards were all vinified seperately. Fermentation temperatures
ranging from 12-18 Celsius. Wines were left on the fine lees till the final blend was made up.
A modern new world style of Sauvignon blanc. Showcasing finely balanced fruit in both the greener and herbasceous profile as well as the lighter yellow fruit spectrum.
Aging & Drinking Suggestions:
A wine that will pair excellent with basic mediterranean favourites and fresh ocean fare. Also a great choice on its own when the sun is out. This Sauvignon was made to be enjoyed within the first 3 years of release.
