Skin contact of 3-12 hours, pressed and settled for 6 -12 hours. Racked and inoculated with a selected yeast e.g. X5, QA 23: CKS; X5. 3 weeks alcoholic fermentation temperature controlled at 12-16ºC, post fermentation lees contact to enhance concentration and mouth feel.
This vibrant, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a brilliant lemon-lime colour. The nose is complex with and array of tropical fruit, ripe figs and gooseberries. These crisp flavours repeat in the mouth, along with a mineral character followed by a long fruity finish.The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, presenting purity of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering harmonious finish.
