Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. Over 50% was left on its skins to macerate over night. All fruit was whole bunch pressed over 3 hours and run, by gravity, into settling tanks. 12 hours of settling is passed after which the juice is racked, retaining fine lees, into a horizontal fermentation tank (stainless-steel foudre). Attractive lemon-peel, lime-zest, sliced green-apple and beeswax aromas lead to a palate that offers a fresh, crisp and composed array of fresh lemon-juice flavors. Complex and Savoury for a Sauvignon Blanc, this makes it the perfect food wine.

Attractive lemon-peel, lime-zest, sliced green-apple and beeswax aromas lead to a palate that offers a fresh, crisp and composed array of fresh lemon-juice flavors and a scintillatingly savory, stony finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink over the next six years.
