100% Sauvignon Blanc bottle-fermented in the ‘pétillant naturel’ style, farmed organically, estate grown and vinified by winemaker and viticulturist Hayden Penny. The vineyard and wine are certified organic with www.biogro.co.nz effective from March 2015. The block has an excellent history of organic farming since first plantings in 1989. Being naturally fermented in bottle, sediment will remain.
Grapes were hand-picked from the centre.of the vineyard. Silt and clay soils allow for ripeness while retaining fresh acidity. Gently pressed and sealed overnight at 15°C before racking off heavy lees. Fermented at cool temperatures with indigenous (pied de cuve) yeast. Bottled straight from tank, unfined, unfiltered and unsulphured. Fermentation finished in bottle under crown seal to provide the ‘pétillant’ sparkle.
