Overview

The fruit was picked in the cool of the night. Crushed and pressed oxidatively to avoid colour pickup, the juice was clarified and then yeast added. A cool 3-week ferment ensured maximum fruit retention. Once the ferment was finished the wine was left on yeast lees for 6 weeks to develop mouthfeel. The wine was then clarified and bottled.
