The first and foremost observation made about the wines is often the colour.
Above all, these are perhaps some of the darkest, deepest colored wines discovered. This is also a result of a combination of the terroir and vinification process.
The cellar only produces in particular a small quantity of wine and assumes a hands-on and conscientious approach at each step.
Absolutely with creativity, the whole wine package fine-tuned.
Interference therefore kept to a minimum during the wine making process.
The grapes are most importantly handled gently as possible.
The grapes are finally harvested into small fruit bins, where they are checked and sorted before being lightly crushed and destalked.
We ferment the grapes through open stainless steel tanks using naturally occurring yeasts from the vineyard.
Fermentation temperatures are 28 – 30° C. By using indigenous yeasts, the wine displays the unique character of the terroir and vineyard.
Crush the white grapes and left on the skins for a 2 hours contact period.
The must then settled for 1 day in a settling tank and then racked straight to barrel where it will ferment.
