about the harvest: We experienced a warmer than usual picking season, which made securing optimal ripeness a bit of a challenge. We set out early morning to hand-pick before the temperatures picked up. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes harvested displayed good concentration of ripe fruit.

in the cellar : After sorting, destemming and crushing, 50% of the grapes had skin contact for 6-12 hours. Only the free-run juice was used for this wine. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and left on the lees for 2 months. The challenge in the cellar is always to capture the full potential of each batch of grapes.
