VINTAGE 2021

The 2021 growing season was a return to the enviable, lower stress conditions that Central Otago is famous for. We started with a warm spring, which gave the vines a good start. January was cooler and wetter, which replenished the soils and slowed growth, giving small, intensely flavoured grapes. By the time the beginning of harvest rolled around, we were just ahead of our long term average in terms of rate of ripening, and with fruit in fantastic condition. Yields were thankfully back to average in most areas, with only Bannockburn cropping slightly lower. This has given wines with excellent flavour and structure.

 

WINEMAKING CONSIDERATIONS

 

We picked the fruit at the beginning of April, around the normal time for our harvest. The fruit was handled gently during processing to avoid oxidation, 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.

Vegan friendly wine.
