Stables Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Stables Reserve offers a sense of history with its name taken from the original Stables where it all started in the heart of the Hawke’s Bay more than 100 years ago. Gentle in style, the Stables range evokes life’s simple pleasures – warmth, hospitality and conversation.

GROWING SEASON AND WINEMAKING

The growing season started cooler than average but was followed by a very warm and dry January. February cooled bringing perfect ripening conditions followed by a dry March allowing fruit to be harvested in optimum condition.

Grapes sourced from a portion of the vineyard known to produce fruit with exceptional ripeness and flavour were gently pressed. Only the free run juice and lightly pressed portions were used. The must is inoculated with specific yeast strains and fermented at low temperatures to retain elegant aromatic varietal character. Fermentation was halted to create a fruit-driven textural wine.
