About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested at 23° Balling, handpicked and selected in the vineyards.
In The Cellar
The grapes were harvested early morning and were hand sorted on a sorting table, and pumped over into a tank for 12hr skin contact. After the contact period, the wine was pressed and only the free run juice was used to make this wine. Fermented at 13° C till dry. Spent 2 months on lees.
