Viticulture

The plants are from French and Italian origin with average are 5 years. The forming is single vertical shoot positioning (VSP or single guyot), the density is 5000 plants per hectare. The yield is controlled at 9-10 ton/ha. Regulation of production, e.g. green pruning is made when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Only one shoot per bud is left. Also, important viticultural practice is de-leafing the vines on the non-sun exposed side in the afternoons and stimulate formation of leaf mass on the sun-exposed side.

Tasting notes

Brilliant and pure pale straw-yellow color. 42/25 Sauvignon Blanc reveals gorgeous aromas of freshly cut grass, green apple and juicy lemon, elegantly surrounded by elderflower and hints of fresh nettle. In the mouth it is fresh, herbaceous-fruity, with fine notes of elderberry, citrus and green apple. Wine with a light body, excellent balance, medium-lasting finish and mineral aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for 42/25 Sauvignon Blanc takes place in the early mornings, in the first half of September. The grapes are hand-picked by stages from the three plots and are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate cooling the grapes are carefully sorted by hand. The finest selection of Sauvignon Blanc grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification and bottling complete the winemaking process.
