We source our Sauvignon Blanc fruit from a small three acre lot on our Jardine Vineyard. This variety heralded the beginning of the harvest in mid-August. The fruit was hand picked in the cool morning hours and immediately delivered to the winery. The membrane press we use to process the fruit leaves a very low level of solids in the resulting juice and therefore preserves more of the varietal characteristics and acidity in the finished wine. The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromatics of the variety. Following fermentation the wine was transferred into smaller tanks for five months and lees stirring took place to soften the wine and increase mouthfeel and texture. Our Jardine Sauvignon Blanc did not undergo malolactic fermentation to preserve the fresh, crisp style. Prior to bottling it was lightly filtered and cold stabilized.

Enjoy now through 2008.
