The grapes for this wine come from our Silver Tussock vineyard in the Pisa Sub-Region of the Cromwell basin of Central Otago. The warm early season conditions really accelerated harvesting, with the earliest pick we have done for our Sauvignon Blanc on the 18th March. The fruit was reductively handled during processing, gently pressed and racked clean. The wine fermented very slowly in stainless steel, to dryness. These practices are employed to retain the maximum varietal fruit character of Sauvignon Blanc.
