Variety Sauvignon Blanc
Vineyard The vast majority of our Sauvignon blanc vines are planted in deep, cool alluvial soils with high water holding capacity. Planting the very sensitive Sauvignon blanc in these soils and using a northwest to southeast row direction helps to buffer the vines against unfavourable weather conditions, such as heat waves. Some vineyards are managed to be a bit more vigorous in growth, with a slightly denser canopy to ensure that some of the more herbaceous flavours are retained while other vineyards are shoot thinned more severely to create an more open canopy. This enhances the synthesis of terpenes which are responsible for the tropical fruit characters, typical of Sauvignon Blanc.
