About The Harvest
The weather was moderate throughout the ripening season. This led to much even ripening of the grapes. Therefore we could harvest at optimal ripeness
In The Cellar
The grapes were destemmed and only the free-run juice was used. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 14 days where after fermentation was stopped by cooling the juice to 6˚C. The wine spent 2 months on the lees with occasional stirring.
