The fruit was hand harvested after passing the herbal, gooseberry character of classic Sauvignon Blanc and started to approach more rose petal and muscat flavours. It was immediately pressed into tank and chilled for 48 hours. Alcoholic fermentation occurred naturally and was followed by full malolactic conversion. The finished wine stayed in tank on gross lees for 11 months. No sulphur was added until bottling.

Many years ago when Jason Searle was helping out at Bass Phillip he came across Bill Downie. Bill and Jason realised that they shared some common ideals for wine. A friendship was then forged during viticulture studies , a passion for wine with definition of place and interest was often the bonding agent. After vintage in Italy Jason returned to keep working on a part-time basis in vineyards while Bill's star was on the rise making a name for himself as one of Australia's brightest young winemakers. Firstly at De Bortoli and then creating the William Downie wines, all this whilst spending the majority of the year in Burgundy. As Jason began to put some ideas in place to start making wine, Bill, now back in Australia, put forward the idea of making them together. Save Our Souls was born. The intention was to make affordable wine that was removed from the shadows of typical ‘New World' wine making practices.
