Tasting Notes
The wine is lively and fresh with a hint of passion fruit and gooseberries from the Sauvignon Blanc. The Semillon contributes the more herbaceous, grassy character as well as complexity to the palate. It also contributes to the balance and makes you reach for another glass. Due to limited use of additives the wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Ageing Potential
This wine easy to drink now, although with proper storage it will keep for a further two years.
Blend Information
80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon
Food Suggestions
Due to limited use of additives the wine is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
About The Harvest
The grapes used are early to mid season ripeners and harvesting occurs at optimum ripeness when the acidity is still refreshing. The handpicked fruit is sorted, protected and delivered to the cellar, mostly in the morning when it is still cool.
In The Cellar
The grapes are crushed and destalked to our pneumatic bag presses for ± 4 hours skin contact. Thereafter pressing occurs and the juice is settled overnight before racking into cold fermentation with selected yeast. Down to Earth White is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon to ensure complexity, but it remains unwooded.
Additional Information
The Down to Earth concept is to create a wine that can be enjoyed by all. The name implies that it has to be consistent, reliable and affordable. The wine has to offer interest but drinkability is paramount. Down to Earth is packaged to grace any table and the style ensures that it can be enjoyed at any occasion.
