Vineyards and Winemaking
Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced for this wine are from a mixture of Biogro certified vineyard sites from both the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. Vineyards are managed with a focus on enhancing soil vitality to grow healthy and balanced vines utilising organic products and methods to work with nature to ensure quality fruit.
Biogro Certified approved yeast strains are used in cool, stainless steel ferments, with wines spending a carefully monitored time on yeast lees to add texture and depth to the wine. Our organic Sauvignon Blanc is bottled whilst young to deliver a fresh, aromatic wine.
