In The Vineyard

Warm weather in August resulted in earlier bud break, after which a warm, dry and windy summer kept vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by approximately two weeks.


About The Harvest

The 2015 harvest had a very early start. A combination of hand and mechanical harvested grapes.


In The Cellar

Grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. After the juice settled it was racked of the primary lees and inoculated with selected cultivated Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. Fermentation temperature was managed at around 12 - 13˚C. After fermentation finished the wine was kept on the fine lees for +/- 2 months.
