Overview

Sauvignon Blanc

Aging

No aging.

Fermentation

Batches were fermented separately until dry with only a small portion of the juice being barrel fermented in neutral old oak barrels; 10% went through natural fermentation, while 20% underwent full malolactic fermentation in tank. No preservatives were added before fermentation; therefore the wine is low in sulfur.
