The grapes were harvested using our Pellenc Selective harvesters and crushed to bag presses. The juice was promptly drained and pressed from the skins to minimise excessive phenolic extraction. The juice was then settled naturally and clarified to a level that optimised Sauvignon Blanc flavours during fermentation.
Each parcel of juice was then inoculated with selected aromatic yeasts with a small portion of the blend being fermented in French Oak Cuves to enhance mid palate texture and complexity while the balance was fermented in stainless steel. The parcels in stainless steel were maintained at cool temperatures to retain the aromatic qualities of the fruit. The components were then carefully selected and blended to retain the aromatic qualities of the fruit.
