AWARDS
Veritas 2001 - Bronze
in the vineyard : A blend dominated by 85 % Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay. Grapes are from vineyards ranging from decomposed granite to stony clay soils and rich alluvial soils, at altitudes ranging from 150 - 400m above sea level.

about the harvest: All grapes were hand-picked in the cool of the early morning.

in the cellar : Vinification is reductive. The Sauvignon Blanc was cool-fermented and matured in small oak for six months to add complexity. The barrel-fermeented Chardonnay adds a rounded richness to the wine.
