Technical Information

This Sauvignon Blanc was hand-picked, de-stemmed and, the fruit was then whole bunch pressed, and fermented in stainless steel tanks.

The 2019 Vintage season was remarkable with harvest times similar to last vintage, with fine weather and dry conditions. Harvesting of high-altitude vineyard were a little later, started from mid to late March and extended into mid-April. The season saw Budburst between late September in warmer areas and mid-October in the more elevated parts which was about normal. Winter rains had provided soil moisture for Budburst. The fruit set was generally good.

A very dry January to May led to even ripening and low disease pressure. Cool, dry nights resulted in excellent fruit flavours and good acidity. This vintage looks to be a good one. Baumés achieved were greater than previous years and fruit quality was excellent with yields average to below average.
