The Mont Rochelle Sauvignon Blanc is made solely from 24-year-old vineyards situated at Mont Rochelle. A small percentage of Semillon was blended into the wine, with part of the wine being fermented in neutral oak barrels for increased complexity and texture. Freshness and layered fruit complexity are the hallmarks of our Sauvignon blanc.

in the vineyard : Harvested in the cool of the morning, the grapes were carefully selected in the vineyard before a gentle crushing, cold soaking and pressing. The juice eas put through cold stabulation for 6 days at 6 degrees and then allowed to settle for two days. This was followed by racking and then fermentation at various temperatures and a small percentage was moved to older French oak barrels. A small percentage of Semillon (14 %) was blended into the winter after completion of fermentation. The wine was aged on the lees for 8 months for integration and complexity development.
