Why do we love this wine?

More texture, more delicious. Damn straight. But if you must know, what “sur lie” really means is aged on dead yeast cells. Not as sexy, is it? Well, maybe.

Ok, so imagine a barrel of juice that’s just finishing ferment. Most people “rack it off”, which means syphoning the juice off the yeast once they’ve finished their work and getting it ready for bottle. Instead, some people give it a bit of intimate time with the yeast, letting them get to know their nuances. It adds a bit of nuttiness, more body and texture, takes the edge of the sharpness. What you end up with is a wine that’s more interesting, more robust and has a bit more potential time in bottle. This is what sauvignon blanc wants to be.

Get amongst it.
