Angove Organic Sauvignon Blanc is grown from organically certified grapes grown in our own Nanya Vineyard, near Paringa South Australia. Vintage 2015 in the heartland of Australian wine country was ideal, although early. A warm start to spring meant many varieties started their growing at the same time putting pressure on our vineyard team to ensure ideal wine health. These perfect growing conditions were welcome but highlighted the importance of well managed irrigation practices. With exceptional care in the vineyard we were able to ride the heat spike that occured in February.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern tank presses. After cold setting the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling filtration and bottling at the Angove winery.
