vintage

 A very distinct 2017 vintage. A prolonged cool and wet growing season meant the vines were lush and healthy heading into ripening and carrying slightly higher than average yields. Wet and cool conditions for the months of February and March producing highly aromatic whites. The month of April saved the vintage with cool and dry conditions that allowed the last of the white varieties to achieve full ripeness before hand harvesting in early-mid April.

winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc grapes were gently pressed to extract the intense flavours and aromas within the Sauvignon grape skins. During fermentation, cool temperatures were used to encourage aroma production and overall varietal expression. A parcel of Sauvignon Blanc went direct to barrel and was fermented in new and old French oak puncheons to impart spice, texture and style to the end wine. On the completion of fermentation, the wine was chilled and clarified to ensure primary fruit freshness is at the forefront of the style.
