Grape Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Country: New Zealand
Vinification: The fruit was machine harvested in cool evening conditions and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. After settling, the clear juice was fermented at very low temperatures with selected yeast strains to preserve the inherent varietal flavours. The wine was fermented entirely in stainless steel.
Ageing/Maturation: Hand crafted using traditional methods including a 25% whole bunch indigenous fermentation and hand plunging. Maturation is in French barriques for 11 months, using a mix of older and new (25%) barrels.
Sweetness: 3.3 g/L
