Why barrel fermented Sasuvignon Blanc?

New Zealand winemakers love to create new, exciting wines out of the country's favorite grape Sauvignon Blanc.

There is increasing diversity of styles achieved through the use of wild ferments, degrees of lees contact, as well as fermentation and/or ageing in oak, both old and new.

All these techniques create styles away from the zingy, crisp Sauvignon Blanc style and add something new to the pleasure of experiencing different wines.

Wild ferments and barrels

Helps to add complexity and texture, without dominating the nose. Barrel fermentation also helps to tame the crisp acidity.

Lees contact (with stirring)

The yeast adds both savoury notes and also serves to work as a natural fining agent.
