Soil is deep ripped before planting. Vines are spaced at approx one metre, with around 20 buds per vine, and hedged trellised, exposing the grapes to the sun to achieve maximum ripeness.
They are cane pruned one year in four followed by three years of spur pruning. White wine grapes are planted lighter, better drained soil.
Grapes were whole bunch pressed. Cold fermented in stainless steel before stabilizing and filtration. Bottled under screw-cap to retain freshness and soundness of fruit character.
Winemakers Tasting Note
The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc has a pale straw colour, with hints of citrus fruits and herbaceous characters on the nose.
The citrus characters follow through onto the palate where they are balanced with mineral and grassy flavours.
The medium bodied wine has a clean, crisp and refreshing finish.
An ideal aperitif, and suited to fresh seafood and light pasta dishes.
Besting drinking between now and 2013.
