Tasting Notes

A popular and unmistakable Sauvignon Blanc that is loved for its green herbal flavours and high acidity.  The acidity is well balanced which makes it a pleasant and festive wine.

Serving Suggestions

Before serving Merwida Cuvée Brut, ensure it is chilled between 5 - 7°C.  A domestic refrigerator is normally around 5°C and by the time the bottle is opened, the serving temperature will be around 8°C.  The wine should not be colder than 5°C as the flavour of the wine will not develop.  The wine will perform best at an age that is between 1 - 2 years.  The more fruit-driven sparkling wines are an ideal pairing with Asian cuisine.  Matching canapés for this sparkling wine is fried spring rolls, salty cheeses with crackers or a mini chicken kebab or just an everyday celebration .
