Uva Mira Sing-a-Wing Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Uva Mira Sing-a-Wing Sauvignon Blanc is a reflection of nature in each glass with a complexity of terroir that will hold your attention. It tells the story of a loving couple and the term of endearment between them: Sing-a-Wing.
Clear straw colour. Swirl the glass to enjoy aromas of blackcurrant, lime and green apple with subtle chalkiness and minerality. Sophistication and poise, a beautiful concentration and balance on the dry palate. Sharp acidity with an enticing salinity and clean flavours of lime citrus, green apple, white peach, seaweed and flint. Closes with a dry finish and the promise to reveal more with time.
Fun Fact: The poem written by O.T.V. Senior to his wife, Margaret, on their 25th wedding anniversary is on this wine’s back label. So you can get all soppily romantic and Sing-a-Wing with them.
100% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes come from Uva Mira’s high lying Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in Helderberg, 9 kilometres from False Bay. The vineyards are South-west facing with Cumulic soils (Tukulu) and an altitude of 470 metres above sea level.
Delicate hand-picking of the berries before transportation to the cellar in the early morning while temperatures are cool. The fruit goes through a meticulous hand selection on a sorting table upon arrival at the cellar. Fermentation takes place in modern stainless steel fermenters.
Cellaring potential: 3 years.
