2022 Sauvignon Blanc
Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from a small sandy-gravelly block on our Jardine Vineyard. Although naturally vigorous on the vine, this variety can be sensitive to degradation during winemaking so steps are taken to preserve its fragile varietal characteristics.
The grapes for the 2022 vintage were picked and delivered to the winery in the cool morning hours. The fruit was gently pressed and settled with judicious use of inert gas. The wine was then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to limit oxidation and preserve the aromatics. Following fermentation, the wine was kept on the lees to further enhance the characteristics and mouthfeel.
Aroma: Passion fruit, guava, and lemon with hints of citrus blossoms
Taste: Light to medium-bodied with lively acidity, guava, citrus and stone fruit flavors, clean, lively finish
