Harvest Notes:

This sparkling is 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the Gisborne Valley, New Zealand. The fruit is picked at optimum maturity for sparkling at 18.3 Brix, delivered to the winery, crushed and cooled to 4 degrees before the free run juice is gently pressed out to a settling tank. The juice is allowed to settle and clarify for 24-48 hours prior to racking and inoculation with yeast for primary fermentation.

Fermentation Notes:

Fermentation is controlled between 14 - 18C over several weeks to maintain the lively zesty aromas so typical of Sauvignon Blanc from this region. The base wine is allowed to settle and naturally clarify before racking off gross yeast lees and prepared for secondary fermentation. Secondary fermentation takes place in pressurized tanks designed to capture the delicate effervescent bubbles prior to bottling.
