in the vineyard : Grapes were selected from high altitude south facing vineyards with cool meso-climates where ripening is slower, resulting in more intense varietal expression.

about the harvest: The Sauvignon Blanc is hand picked for graceful varietal expressions. Grapes were picked at different stages of ripening between 20º and 24º B to maximise flavours and accentuate intrinsic terroir traits.

in the cellar : Cold fermentation in cellar captures the intrinsically ripe yet refined aromas and flavours and a secret splash of Semillon adds further excitement and intrigue.
