Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from a range of selected vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. The fruit is harvested in the early hours of the morning, taking advantage of the cool night air. Fruit is then crushed and chilled in a pneumatic press, where the free run juice and pressings are separated. The juice is cold settled for 3 - 4 days, racked off solids and then fermented in stainless steel tanks with a small proportion fermented in French oak barrels. Post fermentation individual batches are blended to create the Nepenthe style.
