The Sauvignon Blanc fruit was de-stemmed and pressed, where it stayed for a 24 hour period with the juice being reintroduced to the press to extract more flavour and complexity from the grapes. The fruit was then pressed a second time and afterwards was settled in a tank, chilled, then racked into stainless steel tanks where it went through a slow, controlled fermentation using specialised yeasts for high sugar content musts.
