Nederburg The Young Airhawk Sauvignon Blanc, Western Cape

Nederburg The Young Airhawk Sauvignon Blanc, Western Cape

This wine pays tribute to Johann Graue’s son, Arnold. Arnold introduced many technical innovations in his short life; he died tragically at 29 in a light aircraft crash. This wine is made entirely from barrel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc; the grapes hand-harvested from cool-climate vineyards in Elim, Darling and Durbanville. Aged on its lees for about ten months in small barrels, the wine develops creaminess and complexity. Aromas of green figs and asparagus met on the palate with texture and a minerally finish. The 2015 vintage was awarded 92 Points in Tim Atkin's SA Special Report 2016
