After crushing, grapes are pumped through mashcooler straight to press for draining. The freerun juice was settled and fermented separately from pressings. Extended lees contact after fermentation for about 8 weeks to increase “creamy” character. The juice/wine handled reductively throughout process.
Ken Forrester Sauv Blanc Reserve 2022
This wine shows lovely complexity with mix of tangy grassy notes, fig leaf, peach and nectarine nuances. Brisk acidity with minerality on the palate which is typical of the long hang time in our cool region.
