Carmen Stevens Savi Sparkling Wine x 6
1. Vineyard notes:
The Savi Sparkling wine is a blend of fruit from, Cape Town, Elgin and Stellenbosch. Each region adds to the flavours profile of the final blend. The Cape Town region adds a lime refreshing element, Elgin region for the minerality and Stellenbosch for the rich pure fruit profile. Each region comes with its own climatic conditions and own vineyard practices. The Cape Town region, because of the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean needs more of an open canopy to allow more indirect sunlight. Elgin requires good ventilation to promote the drying of the fruit after rain and to prevent diseases and Stellenbosch requires the right fruit coverage to prevent sunburn.
2. Winemaking notes
The Savi Sparkling wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. All fruit are handpicked at optimum fruit ripeness.
All Fruit are bunch sorted, pressed and fermented with pure yeast cultures.
Both a reductive and an oxidative winemaking methods are employed with the SBL. After fermentation, all wines are kept on the lees and stirred, adding to the fullness of the after-palate. The finale blend is a combination of the different styles of winemaking practices and carbonated whiles bottled.
3. Tasting notes:
The Savi Sparkling wine showcases a pink rose-gold hue both inviting and in vogue. Tiny, tiny bubbles comes to life from the bottom of the glass. The nose shows a sweet toffee element fused with red ripe strawberries yet has a vibrant lime-sorbet appeal perfect for warm summer days. The palate entrance show an explosion of ripe strawberries followed by a mineral salty element and a sweet mid-palate appeal which adds depth and linger to this wine. The zesty lime and fruit sweetness is in perfect harmony with each other and brings the different components together beautifully. The fine foam feeling on the palate adds that special spark necessary for a celebration!
