• Maceration

    Sauvignon Blanc Blend

    The orange maceration is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc 50%, Semillon 5%, Riesling 40% and Viognier 5% macerated on skins for between 2-5 weeks. Blocks were picked at different ripeness to add varying flavours and intensity of tannin. All components were pressed to old French oak where they remained (some un-topped) for 6 months on full solids. The wines were racked prior to bottling and a small 25ppm sulphur addition was added. The wine remains unfiltered, unfined and no other additions.
