in the vineyard : All of the grapes used in the Rickety Bridge Sauvignon blanc originate from only the best terroir chosen to produce a world class wine reflective of the Rickety Bridge philosophy.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand on 22.8° B with good harvesting conditions through out. Perfect harvesting conditions with long cool, dry summer and cold wet winter.

in the cellar : Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at 12.5° C with two noble yeast strains used. The wine was left on its primary lease for 5 months being stirred twice a week to enhance flavours and mouth feel.
