Tangram White Blend 2021
The tangram is a Chinese geometrical puzzle consisting of five triangles, a square and a rhomboid, which can be arranged to make various forms and pictures to tell a story. To master the Tangram, one has to look at the whole puzzle to understand and form the myriad of images to be shaped. Our Tangram is skillfully crafted from the following seven elements; our three wine makers, earth, wind, fire & water. A noble blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon was created. This wine was rested in French oak barrels for 10 months and is an expression of an illustrious cool climate wine.
COLOUR: Pale straw with green edges.
AROMA: Powerful bouquet of fresh orange rind, blackcurrants, persimmons and lemon grass. While shy at first, subtle floral nuances of newly flowering lemon blossoms lead way to a perfumed and flinty nose as the wine opens up.
TASTE: Rich, creamy fullness with concentrated complexity of lemon and lime, minerality and green melon on the finish. The wine is well-integrated and balanced reminiscent of Southern Bourdeaux white blend.
FOOD PAIRING: Exquisite when served with a creamy Coq Au Vin, buttery game fish, sticky short rib, or a creamy, citrus zest-driven shellfish dish.
AGING: For optimum enjoyment, decant at least one hour before consumption and serve at 15°C - 18 °C. If stored in optimal conditions, the wine will last at least a decade.
