Making Techniques Grapes harvested from three vineyards: Hope Plains, Sturkenboom, Chisnall. In the winery the grapes were handled very gently and underwent cool fermentations in stainless steel tanks using selected yeast strains. Each component was then held separately and matured for six weeks on yeast lees to allow the fruit characters to fully integrate. Then, after careful blending trials, selected tanks were combined to make the Brightwater Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc.
