Cellar

All grapes were hand picked, pressed in a variety of methods including destemming-crushing and whole bunch and then fermented in batches in stainless steel tanks of 5000 litres.  Cold fermentation with a variety of different yeasts was followed by 2 months maturation on the lees. Regular stirring of the lees allowed a creamy texture to develop in the wine.

Harvest

February 2019. All grapes were handpicked.
