Post House Blueish White 2010 A white blend with an almost equal portion of Viognier and Chardonnay to fill out the largest component of Sauvignon Blanc. Shows good structure and a dry tanginess which is excellent for food pairing.
 
 

Elegant and a finely crafted blend of Chenin blanc and Sauvignon blanc giving a fruity upfront wine for easy drinking. Light coloured wine with a tinge of green. A nose of pineapple, guava, citrus and grassy tones.

For white wine, the crushed grapes undergo skin contact for only two hours. After spending one day in a settling tank, the must is racked straight into barrels where fermentation takes place. The aim is to reduce air contact to a minimum, which promotes clean varietal flavours. The grapes are allowed to ferment spontaneously with the aid of wild yeasts that occur naturally in the vineyard. By harvesting the grapes early in the morning while it is still cool and by using natural yeasts, the must fermentation is slow and remains fairly cool at around 17 to 19ºC. The wine is left on its lees and stirred regularly to enhance complexity. Thereafter, the wine is fined with bentonite but remains unfiltered before bottling. Sulphur levels are kept to a minimum.

Grilled fish with a creamy sauce is a great match.
