WINEMAKING

The grapes were harvested before sunrise, on a cool morning. The grapes were then offloaded and processed with the use of dry ice. This ensures that the juice stays fresh and prevent oxidation of juice. Skin contacted occurred in a closed juice separator for approximately 45 min, to ensure the extraction of methoxypyrazines, which is responsible for the green pepper and asparagus flavours in the wine. The juice is cold fermented at 12 degrees. The wine is kept on fine lees for 3 weeks before bottling.
