Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Awatere Valley vineyards were used to craft this wine. The fruit was harvested over a period of twenty days.
At the winery, the fruit was destemmed and gently pressed. Each of the individual parcels were fermented separately using a range of selected yeasts to enhance varietal characters. The wine was then blended, stabilised and filtered in preparation for bottling.
Our Land Made wines tell the story of New Zealand’s leading wine regions from alluvial plains and windswept coastlines to spectacular mountain ranges. For this collection, our winemakers allow the land to tell its own story, skilfully combining individual parcels of fruit to produce wines that are reflective of their distinctive origin.
Leave the land better than we found it
At Yealands, we aim to leave the land better than we found it. We achieve this through a wide range of initiatives and on-going projects including developing wetlands, making our own special compost and using natural pest control measures in our vineyard.
