Laborie Sauvignon Blanc

Layered Sauvignon with powerful aromas of grapefruit and tropical fruit along with hints of perfume, green fig and floral characters. Fresh, crisp and elegant flavours linger on the palate and deliver a zingy finish.

The run up to vintage was characterised by a good “typical” Cape winter with loads of cold unit accumulation and good rains over days that really did much to replenish the subsoil water tables and flush built up salts after the years of drought. The winter ran a little long and delayed budbreak too. Budbreak was even, if a little late and cool. Spring remained cool and saw numerous rainfall events that
added disease pressure as well as compressing canopy work schedules like shoot thinning, wire lifting and leaf breaking. Cool summer conditions continued into January when vintage began later than usual. Vintage characterised by alternating hot and cool conditions with small rainfall events throughout. A season where picking decisions and ph management in the winery were important.
This layered Sauvignon Blanc shows prominent aromas of passion fruit, cut grass and peppers. The flavours on the nose follows through on the palate and the palate is fresh, zesty, well balanced with a linear acidity and fruity finish.
Enjoy this wine on its own or with a variety of salads, white meat dishes and fresh seafood. Sauvignon Blanc is generally best enjoyed when it is chilled.
Enjoy now or cellar for 20 months from vintage date

The Laborie story began in 1691, when the Farm Laborie in the region of Paarl was granted to French Huguenot Isaac Taillefert. The family knowledge of French viticulture meant that within seven years they were producing drinkable wine. The Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production that, over three hundred years later, is evident in Laborie’s wines of distinction.
