VARIETY: 100% Sauvignon Blanc Vineyards: The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was made from a steep south facing block which is between 250 and 300 meters above sea level. The vines, clone SB 316 planted on Richter 99 root stock were planted in November 2003 and yielded 9,5 tons per hectare.

WINEMAKING: All grape bunches were sorted before being destemmed. The berries were then sorted and crushed. The juice was then pressed off the skins immediately. Flotation was employed and the juice was inoculated a day after processing with Alchemy 11 yeast. Fermentation was completed at a constant 14 degrees and then the wine was left on the gross lees for 2 months to add richness and weight to the palate.
