In The Cellar

After destalking and crushing, the mash was cooled to 16°C, pressed at 0.5 bar in a membrane press and 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 bottling.
