About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested at 24 degrees Balling.

In The Cellar

Grapes underwent whole bunch pressing. The acidity of the juice was lifted to 7.5g/l and the juice was inoculated with VIN 13 yeast. The wine was immediately pumped into 225l French oak barrels and left to ferment dry. After 5 months of lying on the lees, the wine was racked and placed back into the barrels for a further 4 months, after which it was stabilised and bottled.
