in the cellar : The main objective in the vinification of Sauvignon Blanc is to retain as much fruit as possible. To meet this goal all the fruit was handled reductively throughout the vinification process. Harvesting date was determined by the concentration of fruit flavors. The fruit was picked in small batches of 4-6 tons each and out of two blocks a total of 8 pickings were done on different days. The grapes were crushed and then pumped into drainer tanks and left on the skins for 6 hours. After pressing the juice was allowed to settle for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked to a stainless steel tank where it was inoculated with yeast. Fermentation temperature was between 10°C and lasted for about 21 days. The wine was kept on its gross lees for three months with regular stirring before bottling June 2006.
