Sauvignon Blanc is planted on near perfect Terra rossa soils, providing an ideal level of nutrient and water retention. Vines are significantly influenced by the cooling sea breezes of the Southern Ocean and it's associated climate. Nearby plantings of Norfolk Island pine (Araucaria heterophylla) which grow to over 200 feet provide an impressive, dominating influence over the surrounding landscape and the vines. Grapes are selectively harvested, full protective handling is employed to avoid any oxidation or browning. Juices are clarified, inoculated and vinified at lower temperatures. Upon completion, components are assembled and bottled immediately to maximise retention of fresh fruit characters.
