Franschhoek Cellar is a beautiful estate on the Franschhoek Valley wine route of South Africa, and is home to an exquisite range of award-winning wines created to fully complement their cuisine. Statue de Femme is their Sauvignon Blanc, with grapes carefully selected from cool pockets of vineyards before being processed in a reductive style to retain fresh aromas, with an added 4 months lees contact to enrich complexity at the end.
Expressive tropical aromas tinged with capsicum open up to attractive gooseberry, grapefruit and pineapple flavours. The lively but gentle coated acidity follows through to a fresh finish of pleasing length. Recommended with prawns, teriyaki salmon, creamy mussels or chicken wraps.
