We source our Sauvignon Blanc fruit from a small five acre lot on our Jardine Vineyard. Sauvignon Blanc heralds the beginning of the harvest in late August. The fruit is 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 is fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve the aromatics of the variety. Following fermentation the wine is transferred into smaller tanks for four months and lees stirring takes 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.

Enjoy now through 2011.

Tasting Notes

  • Color: Brilliant pale straw
  • Aroma: Ripe dried apricots, peach, ripe melon and gooseberry
  • Taste: Full bodied white wine with an intense creaminess on the palate with flavors of yellow peach and dried fruit; yet refreshing with well balanced acidity
