Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Kalfu

£17.95 per bottle

About this wine

Kalfu Sumpai Sauvignon Blanc has a complex, elegant and powerful nose which reveals layers of minerality together with gentle notes of green chilli pepper and herbs.  This refreshing and full-bodied wine has a structured palate and crisp acidity, which provide the mouth with tension and power. A clean and persistent finish, in which an intense salinity adds complexity to the intermingling notes of stone, citrus fruit and herbs.

Ageing potential: This wine can be stored for up to 7 years in optimum conditions.

Food pairing: Best served at between 7° C – 8° C this wine pairs well with oysters, sea urchins and fresh shellfish in general. It is also excellent with ceviche, fish and white meat.

Alcohol: 13% ABV

The variety has classic zingy freshness, citrus notes and in the case of Marlborough in particular, gooseberry aromatics and flavours. Very pure, it can often be opulent yet also the opposite, with taut mineral notes. A classic, modern varietal with huge popularity, usually unoaked, there are an increasing number of food-focused expressions with a little barrel maturation adding texture and lift."
