Notes from JB:
Old vine Sémillon nurtured organically by Fiona Wood in her own vineyard in Mc Laren Flat. The Vines grow just below a Fauna & Flora Reserve on a gentle slope facing straight south on deep sand over clay soil. The Semillon grapes were picked by hand & whole bunch pressed in our screw press for a gentle & phenolic pressing style. After pressing, the Semillon juice settled overnight and got racked clear off its gross lees to start a clean & steady fermentation in Stainless Steel. The Sauvignon Blanc was hand picked about a month later from the later ripening organically farmed Magpie Spring vineyard which produce a really fragrant & balanced grappes on dark loam on clay soils. The Sauvignon Blanc underwent the same winemaking as the Semillon & the two got blended together after they both achieved alcoholic & malolactic fermentation. Elevage in stainless steel for 7 month & bottled on site in our Basket Range winery without fining nor filtration.
