The carefully harvested fruit from our S1 block was de-stemmed, chilled and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off. A long, cool fermentation with a specialist Sauvignon Blanc yeast followed to capture and enhance the distinctive fruit flavours created by the S1 block. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked, stabilised and filtered before bottling
Our S1 block Sauvignon Blanc comes from a sun soaked site, moderated by cool, coastal breezes on our Seaview Vineyard. The subsequent style and flavours reflect this terroir, with flavours of ripe nectarine and a lush, full palate balanced by mouth-watering mineral acidity.
