    Brand: Eagles' Nest

    Eagles’ Nest Sauvignon Blanc 2017

    HK$130
    The nose initially shows primary Sauvignon Blanc fruit aromas, including flavours of guava and white pear. These notes are underpinned by a fresh zesty core, complemented by lime, oyster shell salinity and some spicy celery leaf notes. The palate is fresh, with vibrant acidity and tropical fruit aromas carrying through. Six months' lees contact has bolstered the mouth-feel, adding weight and structure to the pallet. This wine will be ideally paired with sushi, grilled fish and shell fish. Enjoy now or to 2020.

    Variety: 100% Sauvignon blanc

    No. of bottles: 21,195

    Analysis: Alcohol 13.0 vol % | Sugar 2.0g/l | TA 6.7 g/l | pH 3.48 | TSO2 122 mg/l | FSO2 46 mg/l

    Production: This is the 6th vintage of Sauvignon Blanc made on the estate. The grapes come from two cooler-climate coastal vineyard sites especially chosen for their ability to produce world-class Sauvignon Blanc. We hand-harvested the grapes into small lug boxes and transported them in a refrigerated truck to the farm in Constantia, where they were cooled further in a specialised cooling room to 5ºC. The following morning the bunches were de-stemmed and gently pressed, recovering about 70%. The juice settled overnight in a stainless steel tank, after which only the premium clear juice was racked off and inoculated with a cultured yeast strain. The fermentation temperatures were kept low around 14ºC. After fermentation, the wine remained on the lees to give it further complexity for six months.

    Estate: Eagles’ Nest, located on the crest of Constantia Nek pass, is nestled at the foot of the awe inspiring Table Mountain. This pristine and boutique family owned vineyard (38 Ha in size) has in recent years gained a striking reputation for both its beauty and award winning wines. Uniquely characteristic of its wines is its signature of finesse, derived from the cooler climate conditions its vines are exposed to as a result of its elevation and close proximity to the oceanic body that is False Bay, thus delivering very distinctive wines not found elsewhere in South Africa. Quality and consistency is paramount at Eagles’ Nest. Our unique terroir, combined with meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and cellar, yields wines that are the epitome of elegance and balance.

    Waterford Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2016

    HK$163
    A strict selection of Elgin’s best quality vineyards. A more restrained style of Sauvignon blanc showing fresh granadilla and green apple fruit, with underlying chalk and slate notes confirming the Elgin origin of the grapes. The palate is finely textured with soft fruit, tight acidity, and a deceptively long finish of flavours. A wine showing the true expression of Elgin terroir on Sauvignon blanc.

    Keermont Syrah 2013

    HK$255
    Keermont Syrah 2013 is a blend of three different Syrah vineyard sites growing on Keermont Vineyards: Steepside generally produces powerful full bodied wines with rich, spicy flavours. Topside is unirrigated and is usually a more aromatic wine with good structure and natural acid. Sweetwater is the coolest of the three sites and ripens the latest. Sweetwater Syrah is normally lighter and elegant in style with a herbal aroma. Blending barrels from Keermont's two single vineyard wines with a third block called Steep Water, this is a wonderfully wild, gutsy Syrah, with 13% Mourvèdre adding more savoury grip. Textured and granitic, it's spicy and perfumed with a pot pourri of Mediterranean herbs.
