In The Vineyard

All of the grapes used in the Rickety Bridge Sauvignon Blanc originate from only the best terroir chosen to produce a world class wine reflective of the Rickety Bridge philosophy. These low yielding vineyards show complexity and depth with the potential to improve with age.

About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand at 22.5° B with good harvesting conditions throughout. Perfect harvesting conditions with a long dry summer. Cropped at 6 tonnes/ha.

In The Cellar

Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at 12° C using two noble yeast strains used. The wine was left on its primary lease for 6 months being stirred twice a week to enhance flavours and mouth feel.
