Winemaking Notes

The grapes for this wine were harvested by hand at peak maturity, and then pressed whole cluster. The juice was settled before fermentation and then fermented slowly at cool temperatures, in a combination of stainless steel tanks and French oak puncheons. The Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon were vinified separately, and all of the wine lots were left to age on the lees, in both tank and barrel, for 4 months prior to final blending.
