Winemaker's notes

decor wave

At the winery, the fruit was destemmed and gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 72 hours, after which the clear juice was racked off, followed by a long cool fermentation in stainless steel to capture and enhance the fruit flavours. 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.

Vineyard

Awatere Valley and Wairau Vineyards

Carefully selected parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from our Awatere and Wairau Valley vineyards were used to craft this wine. The vines were carefully managed to reach ideal balance and flavor concentration at lower sugar levels, producing a naturally lighter in alcohol wine.
