Man O' War Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2008
The palate shows a rich concentration of flavors with a well balanced vibrant acidity and fresh finish. This wine can be enjoyed with fresh fish and summer salads or as an aperitif. This wine is bottled and protected under screw cap as we believe it is the best closure for quality wine.
Hand harvested grapes were carefully selected for optimal ripeness in the vineyard. Whole bunch pressing ensured delicate juice extraction before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Aromatic yeast strains were selected and fermentation occurred slowly over two weeks at cool temperatures. A small portion was fermented in old French barrels to give added complexity to the final blend.
