Benguela Cove Lighthouse Collection Estate Sauvignon Blanc Walker Bay 2021
Lighthouse Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021
The aroma is explosive of gooseberry and grapefruit with hints of ripe guava, lemon zest and top notes of rose blossoms. The fruit intensity fills your mouth and finishes with a salinity and oyster shell like minerality. Melon, toffee apple and white peach notes persist on the palate.
Cooled sufficiently and made reductive, sets the stage for a vibrant wine in the making. Efficient skin contact followed until the desired acid level was reached. The juice was settled for 48 hours then carefully racked into the fermentation tank. Fermented in stainless steel tank and 2000 L wooden vats using winemaking techniques to enhance thiols, this wine spent 60 days on the lees, stirred up once a week to enhance mouth feel.
Production: 4400 cases
The Lighthouse Collection was created to entice the palate with all the special qualities brought to you by a cool climate wine but meant to be more approachable and accessible in its youth. As an ode to the treacherous yet extraordinary coast, a lighthouse was built overlooking the vineyards, Bot River lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean.
Harvested in the cool of the morning from northern and southern slopes facing the ocean, drives the result of fruit driven and fresh wines.
The briny aftertaste is an open invitation to shellfish and creamy dishes alike.
