THE HARVEST
The chardonnay grows on the highest hill on the property and thus the coolest spot. Cool is a rel-ative word especially as the 2016 harvest was characterized by very dry and hot conditions. Har-vest was a week earlier than 2015

IN THE CELLAR
The unwooded style of Chardonnay is about maintaining freshness, therefore the grapes need to be kept at 14—18 ˚ C during the crush, skin contact period and fermentation. The fermentation in stainless steel tanks lasted 12 days. The wine spent 3 months on the lees before filtration and bottling.
