The saying 'good things come in small parcels' applies to wine. The wine derives its name from the vineyard, the Delta, which was used as an air force training base during World War 2. It is seldom that a single vineyard gives a full spectrum of flavours to make a complete wine. When optimum ripeness is established by the viticultural team, the grapes are machined harvested without preservative and immediately processed. Cold settled the juice is then racked and inoculated with yeast. A temperature-controlled fermentation ensures that the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vitality is harnessed. Once dry the wine is stabilised and bottled.
