Invivo Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc

Lifted lime zest and tropical aromas evolve from the nose and the palate enters with sweet pineapple and red pepper. The bubbly mousse is mouthfilling and sweet but with great acidity that finishes breathtakingly clean and fresh. Invivo Sparkling displays all the classic Marlborough Sauvignon blanc characters of tropical fruits and sweet herbs with a great fizz finish.

Winemaking

The fruit was harvested at night, de-stemmed and crushed then cold settled for 48 hours. Clear juice was racked and solids vacuum filtered back to the free run. A number of yeasts were used to help create a spectrum of aroma’s and texture with average fermentation lasting around 3 weeks. The tanks were then topped up and stirred (battonage) without sulfur for 10-12 weeks. After the wine had gained some lees texture it was lightly fined with Casein and Isinglass and stabilised for bottling.
