More info

There’s substance and palate weight, good length. A mineral, earthy note on the finish bodes well for food matching, especially for seafood and delicately flavoured dishes.

Grapes were handpicked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours. Grapes comes from an 8 ha block with 4 different clones and separate irrigation systems. This block is the highest block on the farm at 200 m above sea level. Bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed as gently as possible. After crushing grapes undergo four hours of skin contact inside of the press to enhance flavour extraction. The juice is settled until clear before racked and cold fermented (10 – 14 ˚C) for almost 1 month in stainless steel tanks to enhance the typical varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for 4 months with regular batonage before being racked, fined and stabilized in preparation for bottling.
