Fruit is crushed and cold settled into temperature controlled fermenters, inoculated to wild and cultured yeasts before a cool vinification aimed at retaining all the brisk, vital expressions of the vineyard. Upon completion, the finished wine is promptly bottled with minimal handling to capture the essence of Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc.
