Tasting Notes:

The Black Swan 2018 shows notes of lime, gooseberry, ruby grapefruit and fynbos on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with blackcurrant, lemon zest, granadilla, yellow apple and fresh fig leaves. A mouth-watering acidity accompanies the full, medium-weighted palate, achieved with extended lees contact in tank. The finish is long and reminds one of capers and strong dill cucumbers.

The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc is a blend of the top two Sauvignon Blanc vineyards on Steenberg and is a selection of the best fruit from the vintage.

The grapes were crushed/de-stemmed and left on the skins for 18 hours. The juice was then left to settle for 2 days before fermentation. A slow and cold fermentation resulted in a full wine.

The wine was kept on the lees for 9 months before being stabilised and bottled in December 2018.

Food pairing

This is a great food wine. Enjoy with asparagus and pea pasta or a seafood platter.
