in the vineyard : 

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 : Grapes are de-stemmed, chilled and lightly pressed after a short period of skin contact. Racked and inoculated with yeast and then cold-fermented. Left on the fermentation lees (sur lie) for 2 months before bottling to add complexity.


Bottling Date: 13 June 2014
