To make our new and improved Governo blend, a portion of grapes are hand- picked early and air-dried, before wild fermented 'on skins'. The remaining grapes are basket pressed and wild-fermented in old French oak, stainless steel and a concrete egg. These batches are then combined and lees stirred occasionally for 7 months, prior to bottling cloudy to maintain a nice orange hue.
The result is a taste that goes beyond what you normally expect from Sauvignon Blanc, transporting your mood to far-flung lands.
