Traditional, Loire style Sauvignon Blanc made partly from old unirrigated bush
vines and partly from younger, cooler-situated vines. Elegant and refined with
subtle flavours of blackberry leaf, passion fruit and minerality.
The grapes were picked in the early morning then brought in at low
temperatures. The juice was allowed to settle naturally.Fermentation
was initiated with cultured yeasts with the temperature kept steady at
12°C to preserve the aroma of the wine. The wine was kept in contact
with the fine lees in the tank for 6 months before bottling.
20% of these grapes are from a single block of 50 year old, unirrigated
bush vines and 80% are from a younger trellised block on the cooler
south facing slopes. The soil is weathered sandstone which accounts
for the wines’ minerality.All practices are organic. Yields are between
3-4 tonne per hectare.
