In The Cellar

Healthy grapes are destemmed and crushed with skin contact overnight before being pressed. Care is taken to ensure minimum oxygen exposure before inoculation of different selected yeast strains. The wine is cold-fermented for 14-16 days in stainless steel tanks. To further enhance the flavours, the wine is left on its fine lees for another four months before bottling.
