Sileni Estates ‘The Straits’ Grand Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, Marl
Grown across a variety of soil types. Gravels provide tropical flavours, clay loams produce citrus notes and deep silty soils lift the aromatic quality. The best parcels are selection for this wine and harvested only when fully ripe. Fruit is cool fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain the pure fruit flavours. A period on yeast lees post ferment develops texture and complexity.
A classic regional style, this wine has intensely aromatic gooseberry and passionfruit characters. The palate is rich and full with a long finish.
Best served lightly chilled to accompany white meats and most types of seafood from oysters to crayfish.
