2017 Sauvignon Blanc
We source our Sauvignon Blanc fruit from a small lot on our Jardine Vineyard. Although vigorous on the vine, during fermentation the wine can be sensitive to degradation so steps are taken to preserve the fragile varietal characteristics.
The grapes for the 2017 vintage were picked and delivered to the winery in the cool morning hours. Gently handled, the fruit was left on the skins with judicious use of inert gas during pressing. The wine was then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to limit oxidation and preserve the aromatics. Following fermentation, the wine was kept on the lees to further enhance the characteristics and mouthfeel.
