TASTING NOTE Perfectly ripe Sauvignon Blanc fermented with wild yeast in large wood format results in an array of complexity: textured, multi-layered with minerality, salinity, blackcurrant, white stone fruits, a rich palate and long zesty finish. WINEMAKING The grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled for 12 hours before being racked to 500L French oak barrels (2nd, 3rd and 4th fill). Fermentation was spontaneous and the temperature was kept between 18-22°C. The wine was aged for 11 months in barrel, before it was racked and blended in stainless steel tanks. The wine aged for a further 3 months in tank and was clarified and stabilised naturally and lightly filtered before being bottled.
