Case of 12
SAUVIGNON BLANC Safriel House (922169)
Barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc has a smoother and riper profile compared with its tank fermented brethren. South Africa is the oldest of the "New World" regions and this wine reflects the harmony between Old World elegance and New World fruitiness. The combination of egg-shaped amphora and barrel fermentation provides a wealth of intense flavors including herbaceous notes, lemongrass, lime, honeyed grapefruit, jasmine and honeysuckle. Oak-aging adds hints of Crème Brûlée and lemon custard to the finish.
Safriel House is a family owned wine house founded upon a passion for South African winemaking, grape growing terroir, and hands-on experience in the cellar. Our small batch wines honor the 300 years of winemaking heritage of the Cape, while at the same time incorporating sustainable, innovative and minimal intervention winemaking techniques. Safriel House wines are part of the new wave of South African wineries and express the climate, geology and wine making styles that make South Africa unlike any other growing region in the world.
