Winemaking

The story of the 2010 Cordon Cut wine starts well before the grapes were harvested. The canes with the fruit (called “cordons”) are cut and left to hang on the trellis for three weeks prior to harvesting. This reduces the grapes to about one third of their original weight, not only concentrating the sugars but also intensifying the flavours. Assessed daily, the grapes were harvested and pressed into stainless steel in late March 2010. After cold settling for a week, a small percentage was racked off for barrel ferment and the rest was co-inoculated and fermented in tank. Specialist yeast strains were used to accentuate the already abundant aromas and lift the fruit. After eight months of storage and barrel ageing, the 2010 Cordon Cut Sauvignon Blanc was carefully blended and bottled in January 2011, and bottle-aged for a further 10 months prior to release.
