Wines for the Wild

WinemakingStyle

Harvested by hand in early 2021 with the Sauvignon Blanc coming off the vines first followed by the Semillon two weeks later. Hand sorted prior to de-stemming, the juice was pressed to stainless steel where it was cooled and allowed to settle out for 24 hours. The next day the juice was racked off the rough lees and fermentation would follow maintaining a temp of 15 degrees C throughout. Dry wine remained on the fine lees in stainless steel in full tanks until October 1st, 2021 when bottling prep began.
