On the North-Eastern side of our property, you will find these Sauvignon Blanc vines in their sandy loam soil home. The vineyard is orientated at an angle to provide as much evenly balanced sunlight as possible. We chose to utilize Clone 1, the same Sauvignon Blanc clone that put New Zealand on the map. This site allows for the grapes to not stress and fully mature, creating a fresh, citrusy and fruit forward Sauvignon Blanc.
Grapes were hand picked in the morning and gently whole cluster pressed to a temperature controlled stainless steel tank. The juice was racked and fermented in tank. After a long fermentation, the wine was aged on light lees and later racked and held cold until it could be finished for an early bottling to maintain freshness and liveliness.
