Each year we select one parcel of the top quality Sauvignon Blanc grapes to be vinified to make this top cuvee of white wine. These grapes are left on the vine to ripen for a few more days after the normal white wine harvest. Then they are carefully picked by hand.
The hand-picked grapes go straight to the winery, where after several hours skin maturation, they are carefully pressed. The juice is left to settle and then run into new oak casks to ferment. After fermentation, the wine is stirred from time to time over a period of several months to increase the complexity. It is bottled the following March.
The vanilla oak flavours and rich fruit f this more structured, fuller flavoured, dry, white wine need time to marry together. This is a wine which benefits from at least a year in bottle.
Priced per case of six bottles.

Still only opened a few of the types or bottles. Plenty of time, and too early to comment on them. Good so far. Glad you are enjoying this vintage. Thanks for the great review. 13-Jan-2018 Product:
