WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

The first organically certified year for our Sauvignon Blanc, after three years in conversion. Parcels for this wine were selected from two separate blocks. The vines in both vineyards are now 15 years old and the crop load was managed to ensure ripeness in which was an optimal growing season. The Sauvignon Blanc vineyard was canopy managed to increase shading, which in turn helps maintain varietal gooseberry flavours. The vineyard performed well during the growing season with minimal sunburn or complications.

Winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested in two separate components with the first pick occurring at 11.8 beaumé. This portion was cold soaked for eight hours prior to pressing. The second parcel was harvested eight days later at 12.6 beaumé. The first component was an austere style with high natural acid and flavours of capsicum and Lantana. The second displayed the more ripe characters of passionfruit and gooseberry with less acidity. Fermentation of the free run juice was performed in stainless steel tanks at 14 (degrees) C to maintain freshness, whilst aromatic yeasts were used to promote aromatics. Several blending trials were conducted to develop the best blend that displays classic Sauvignon Blanc characters.

TASTING NOTES

Sauvignon Blanc is an aromatic wine demonstrating varietal passionfruit, gooseberry and citrus aromas. The flavours of the bouquet follow onto the palate and are complimented with fresh acidity which adds to the refreshing nature of this wine. This wine is a great accompaniment to light salads, seafood and sunny afternoons.
