Carrick Sauvignon Blanc

Bannockburn

Although Sauvignon Blanc is not automatically associated with Central Otago, we have been producing this wine from our Bannockburn vineyards since 2000. We find that the naturally low yields provide us with clean, ripe fruit ideal for making a food friendly style.

Viticulture and Wine Making
This wine is made from 100% Estate Grown, single vineyard, BioGro certified organic, Central Otago fruit. The grapes for this wine are grown under a Sylvos training system to achieve various levels of ripeness which allows us to build layers of complexity and flavour.

The wine is then fermented using wild yeast, with 60% of the blend fermented in our old French oak barrels. Carrick Sauvignon Blanc is made according to our philosophy of minimal intervention and is bottled without fining.
