In The Cellar
After de-stalking and crushing, the mash was cooled to 16° C, pressed at 0.5 bar in a membrane press and, with the aid of a pectolytic enzyme, the juice was settled overnight. The clean juice was then flash pasteurized prior to being inoculated with a selected yeast strain. After fermentation at 14° C the wine was stabilized and filtered prior to a August bottling.
