About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested by hand early morning and transported to the cellar in lugboxes.

In The Cellar

Further sorting and cooling was done before crushing the grapes into a stainless steel tank to be cold-soaked for a further 24 hours. Fermentation was started with a selected culture and two pumpovers per day followed by five days extended maceration. The wine was pressed dry and malolactic fermentation occured naturally in stainles steel tanks after which the wine was racked to 300 liter barrel for 12 months of which 40% was new.
