Winemaking Note

At Hunter’s we try to preserve all the fresh characters we taste in the vineyard. We think it is essential to study all the fruit very carefully before making that major decision on when to pick – we only get one attempt each year. We pick in the cool of the morning and process the fruit using anaerobic techniques.

The cool fruit is destemmed, crushed and lightly pressed. We take the greatest of care to handle the fruit as little as possible during these processes thereby retaining maximum fruit character and aromas.

The juice is clarified by cold settling, after which it is racked and then fermented for approximately 28 days. We ferment fruit from each vineyard separately in individual stainless steel tanks. Then we draw on each of these different components to blend Hunter’s own complex style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
