Varieties
100% Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaking
All grapes were subjected to bunch selection and crushed to stainless steel tanks where they were left to cold soak for a little over 4 days. The free-run juice was then drained by gravity from the tanks. The remaining skins and juice were dug-out and gently squeezed to separate light from hard pressings. The resulting juices were then left to cold settle (at 12ºC/54ºF for 4 days) following which time 80% of the blend was racked to stainless steel tanks, inoculated with selected yeasts and ultra-cool fermented (reaching temperatures as low as 8ºC/46ºF). Following fermentation this component was aged for 2 months on gross lees (without stirring) before blending.   
The remaining of the blend was fermented with selected yeasts in new (5%) and second use (15%) French oak barrels. Post fermentation the barrels were stirred weekly in order to encourage lees break-down and the subsequent pick-up of “yeasty” characters in the wine. After two months the barrel component was blended with the tank fermented component, cold stabilised, filtered and bottled.

Tasting Note
Intense notes of grapefruit, lime,white pepper and fresh gingerdominate on the nose. In the mouth flavours of quince and white peach are backed up by smokey notes leading to a flinty, mineral finish with just a hint of green jalapeño chili. A bright, zesty acidity imparts excellent structure and length.

Serving Suggestions
A great partner to Bouef Bourgignon or similar slow cooked dishes. Ideal for game. In cheeses the edam is the perfect paring.
