Angove Organic Sauvignon Blanc is grown from organically certifi ed grapes grown in our own Nanya Vineyard, near Paringa South Australia. Vintage 2013 in the heartland of the Australian wine industry followed some quite cool nights in the winter of 2012. A cool start to spring meant many varieties were slow to get started in their growing. Once things warmed up in late spring it was back to more normal conditions for the Riverland. These perfect growing conditions were welcome but highlighted the importance of well managed irrigation practices. Heat spikes in November and January were of little concern four our vineyards with suffi cient moisture in our soil profi le.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern tank presses. After cold setting the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling
fi ltration and bottling at the Angove winery.
