Wine Description

Vineyard notes

Vineyard notes

The vineyard does not use any chemical fertilizers or herbicides and the soil has not been removed. Once the crops ripen, the vines are carefully hand picked to ensure the best grape clusters are used during harvest.

Cellar notes

The wine has natural acidity and natural sugar which is a result of being cold-fermented in stainless steel vats. Once fermented, the grapes are aged on sur lees where the heaviest sediments are removed and no malolactic fermentation occurs. Once the wine has been bottled it will rest for six months before selling. The total aging process for this superb wine 18 months.
