In The Cellar

After destalking and crushing the mash was cooled to 16°C and then pressed in a membrane press at ± 1 bar. The free run juice was then allowed to settle overnight. The juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain and fermented dry on French oak staves and left for 3 months on the lees with the staves. The wine was then racked and stabilized and received a light filtration prior to bottling.
