Winemaker Jeff Hinchliffe Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand harvested at night using tractors fitted with lights. The cold fruit was picked into half-ton bins and hauled the short distance to the winery in the morning. At this point we hand sorted the fruit using a custom made sorting conveyor. The fruit was then whole cluster pressed while still cold. A combination of inoculated and indigenous fermentations was used. The malolactic fermentation was conducted early to prevent development of buttery aromas. Our Sauvignon Blanc is aged on the lees until three to four weeks before bottling. This keeps the wine fresh and bright. Bottling takes place from mid November to June at monthly to bi monthly intervals. We grow and vinify our Sauv Blanc to be fresh, vibrant, an ...more... d evocative of the grapes themselves. We have chosen a tin lined screwcap closure— unsurpassed in its ability to retain our wines exuberance. Please note that proper conservation requires cool, even temperatures and the absence of light.
