2017 Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage Conditions
The growing season started off as perfectly as could be hoped for, with a long, cold and wet winter putting the vines and soils in good stead. Although spring was cool, a good and even budburst led to optimal crop levels and healthy early shoot growth. A consistently cool summer led to even and slow ripening of both whites and reds, resulting in wines of elegance and great fruit purity. Beauty is the order of the day in 2017.
