Technical Notes

100% Sauvignon Blanc from vines averaging 9 years. Grapes were handpicked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours. Bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed as gently as possible. After crushing the grapes, then undergo 6 hours of skin contact inside of the press to enhance flavour extraction. The juice is settled until clear before racked and cold fermented (10 14 ˚C) for almost 1 month in stainless steel tanks to enhance the typical varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for 5 months with regular lease stirring before racked, fined with bentonite and cold stabilized in preparation for bottling.
