Vineyard

The Cuvee N is Aurora's 100% sauvignon blanc wine. The name Cuvee N is a dedication to the winemaker's wife, Nathalie.

Winemaking

Grape harvest is made by hand, typically the last week of August. Our goal is to pick at maturity level that would provide an optimal sugar level and preserve the natural acidity and fresh aromas of this grape.

The grapes are then squeeze-crushed, gently pressed and cold fermented at 18° C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and bottled approximately 4 months from the date of harvest.

Characteristics

The color is pale with discrete green brightness. The nose is mildly mineral and fruity with some notes of melon and citrus. The attack is crisp with notes of yellow fruits, followed by a fresh mouthfeel and tingling soft mineral finish
