Clos Malverne Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2018 (6 x 75 cl )
Clos Malverne practices a careful “handmade” style of winemaking, with minimum interference by the winemaking staff, resulting in elegant wines, which are expressive of their terroir. We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time-honoured way of using a Basket Press. Basket pressing is one of the oldest methods of pressing grapes; the Ancient Greeks and Romans developed it, later perfected by the French, Basket presses were one of the earliest styles of a mechanical press, and using a basket press means that it is extremely time consuming the results are soft, elegant wines of great complexity.
The wine is full and dry with well-balanced acid. It has tropical fruit, flintiness and hints of asparagus and figs on the nose that all follow through to the palate. Drink now to really appreciate the fruitiness.
