Environmentally friendly grown grapes from Chardonnay & high altitude Pinot Noir vineyards were used.
Training method: 5-wire vertical trellis
Soil Types: Pinot noir – Oakleaf; Chardonnay – Cartreff-Estcourt
Harvest date: The Pinot Noir was harvested 31 January 2012 and the Chardonnay the day thereafter. Harvested by hand.
Yield: 51 hl and 8.5 tonnes/ha
The free run juice of the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir was combined and fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the base wine (alcohol=10,67%, RS=1,07, pH=3,09, TA=9,22g/L) was sweetened and re-inoculated with a Prix de Mouse yeast in order to start the secondary fermentation in the bottle. The wine was left for another 36 months on the lees in order to develop more body, flavour and complexity. Degorgement took place to remove the lees.
