The 2020 season was challenging for Gibbston, not least due to the significant restrictions at harvest due to the lockdowns. Careful attention to every aspect of viticulture paid dividends and the vines carried fruit through to ripeness, where good concentration was balanced by brisk acidity.
Vineyard: 100% Sauvignon Blanc, hand harvested from 25+ year old vines.
Vinification: A portion of the grapes were traditionally foot stomped and held on skins overnight to increase complexity. Cool fermentation in stainless steel tank, with 20% indigenous (wild) yeast.
