Winemaking

The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was harvested from vineyard sites in the Wairau Valley of Marlborough. These vineyards were selected especially for the suitability of the characteristic flavours of their grapes to the production of a sparkling style wine.
 
Climate: 
Marlborough provides a semi-continental climate with cool winters, hot summers, cool nighttime temperatures and very low rainfall.
 
Soils: Varied between vineyards, including fertile sandy, stoney and clay soils.
 
Harvest: Machine
 
Vinification: 
The grapes were transported quickly to the winery and pressed off their skins immediately to minimise skin contact. The juice was then cool fermented in stainless steel to retain freshness and varietal character. The finished wine was carbonated to enliven the flavours and add an attractive sparkle.
