ageing : Till 2016.

about the harvest: We started harvesting Sauvignon Blanc on 5 February and brought the last fruit in on 15 February. Harvested early in the morning when grapes are still cool. Harvest took place over a 2 week period to obtain different characteristics.
Average °B at harvest: 22 balling

in the cellar : Complexity due to lees contact. Grapes are de-stemmed, chilled and lightly pressed. The juice is cold-settled for 48 hours. Racked and inoculated with yeast. Cold-fermented. Left on fermentation lees (sur lie) for 2 months before bottling.

Bottling Date: 31 May 2013
