Castillo Ladera Airen Sauvignon 2015

Castillo Ladera Airen Sauvignon 2015

A blend of sauvignon and airen grapes producing a flavour of gooseberry and tropical pineapple from the Sauvignon Blanc to the more subtle pear and white nectarine in the Airen. The vineyards are a mixture of low trellised vines on wires and a number of vineyards that are traditional bush vines with lower yields and more flavour concentration.

Winemaking
The grapes are harvested and bought to the winery where they are graded for quality and flavour profile then gently de-stemmed and crushed to large refrigerated draining tanks. Only the free run juice is used and sent to cold settling tanks where it is cooled and settled to clarify the juice. There is no pressing of any of the grapes used to make these wines to reduce the phenolics and keep the wines soft and fresh. Fermentation takes place using specially selected yeast strains in stainless steel to retain the fruit characters of the grape keeping the wine fresh and zesty.
