All Greatwine, wine review done by Real Time Wine - www.realtimewine.co.za.Andy Hadfield of Real Time Wine say - Power fruit continues with the Mimosa range. Guavas. Fruit punch. Bit of a fizz. It'll do pig, it'll do!Pharmy Social Spritzer Odd combo of green peppers and guava. Somehow works. Green peppers a little too green though.Mimosa Wines: Sauvignon Blanc 2011Mimosa's wine is handcrafted by award winning Swiss chef, Bernhard Hess and winemaker, Lourens van der Westhuizen. We believed that the Robertson terroir with the limestone soils are perfect for maturation of top quality Chardonnay.Our Chardonnay comes from the Southern Part of the Robertson Wine Valley. This is the chardonnay region of South Africa.The grapes where picked by hand in the early morning. Then it went into a cold storage room for 12 hours to chill down to 6 degrees. The grapes gets crushed and destemed into a small sub divider. The free run juice gets drained off immediately into small tanks for clarification. After a day of clarification the juice goes into French oak casks to start natural fermentation. Fermentation takes a month and some barrels sometimes takes a bit longer. The wine will be kept on the lees for the whole 12 month period of barrel maturation. The wine will be bottled on the farm with a mobile truck.Food paring: Sauvignon Blanc is a very food-friendly wine and terrific for appetizers such as artichoke dip, veggie dishes or dips, garlic or Italian seasonings in creamy sauces, fragrant salads - like Greek, Caesar or Garden, Thai food, fish (sushi), poultry and the list goes on.Tasting Notes: Complexity meets balance to create an elegant, crisp wine with green-pea aromas and a tropical fruit palate.Winemaker : Lourens van der WesthuizenParticulars of wine.Class/Grade/Type: White WineCultivar(s): Sauvignon BlancVintage: 2011Production Area: RobertsonAverage ton /ha: 9 tonsCapacity: 750mlNumber of Bottle: 3000Litres: 2250ltPackaging: 6btl p/csWine Analysis.Alcohol: 12.9 %Total Acidity: 7.5 g/lVolatile Acidity: 0.60 g/lResidual Sugar:2.4 g/lFree SO2:52 mg/lTotal SO2: 137 mg/lPH: 3.14
