This Sauvignon Blanc selected from 2 vineyards, produces the same style of wine every year. This Sauvignon Blanc reflects the fresh, flinty and full-bodied characteristics of grass, peppers and fruit. A long firm and lasting aftertaste makes this a truly distinctive Sauvignon Blanc.
Serious food wine.

About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested at sugar level of about 23.5° Balling from the 8th February – 12th February 2001.
In The Cellar
The grapes were crushed and pumped into drainer tanks and then left on the skins for 14 hours. The grapes were then pressed and the juice was left to settle clean overnight. The clear juice was racked and then inoculated with yeast. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at 13 °C. The wine was handled reductively throughout vinification and bottled in June 2001.
