ageing : Rest this wine down gently in a cool, dark cellar for another two years to enjoy a truly voluptuous wine.

in the vineyard : 100% Sauvignon Blanc fruit with the majority sourced from bush vines.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested in the early morning to ensure coolness, crushed and lightly pressed.

in the cellar : The must was cold settled for two days before being inoculated with cultured yeast. You will notice that for the first time there is no vintage printed on the label. The reason being that it is a blend of 1997 (33%) and 1998 (67%) wooded Sauvignons. The 1997 Sauvignon Blanc was so exceptional that we kept back a little to blend into this years vintage. It was then blended and fined before bottling.
