The 2017 growing season had higher than average rain events late in the winter, followed by another one in early spring, which increased soil moisture. October conditions were unseasonably warm, and combined with the increased soil moisture caused slightly higher than normal vine growth. The growing period was longer and milder which favoured the earlier ripening varieties - overall a challenging, cooler vintage resulting in leaner, elegant more complex, austere styles. The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc was picked at optimum ripeness during the coolest period of the night to help retain the vibrant primary fruit flavours. It was transported directly to the winery post-harvest, crushed and pressed to tank and allowed to cold settle. 48 hours later the juice was cleanly racked and inoculated with VL3 yeast. The ferment temperature was kept at around 13-14 °C, this helps retain the fresh primary fruit aromas while also developing a complex fermentation bouquet and increased palate weight and texture. Post ferment the wine was fined with traditional additives, cold stabilized and bottled.
