About The Wine

 

The crystaline Sauvignon Blanc fruit is from an undisclosed hillside source with 22 year old vines and farmed by the he-li-an-thus team, led by FUTO's Jason Exposto. The grapes are hand picked and basket pressed, with fermentation occurring with native yeasts in selection of 600L and 225L barrels. The wines are aged on lees for 8 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.

 

As with the he-li-an-thus red wine, the blanc has immense texture while highlighting the purity of crystalline fruit and natural acidity.

  • "Sourced from a cool pocket of the vineyard and picked over numerous passes. We basket press the whole clusters and run the cool juice to seasoned French oak barrels, where the native yeast ferments the wines to dryness. We age for several months on lees before bottling unfined and unfiltered."
