WINE-MAKING
100% de-stemmed and crushed with an addition of sulphur at 20 parts per million. Put into the closed Diemme press for a 1 hour period of skin contact with dry ice. Pressed at 0.8 of a bar – transferred to stainless steel tank - left for 48 hours to allow sediment to settle. Racked into small French oak barrels (2nd / 3rd / 4th fill), where the spontaneous 100% wild yeast alcoholic fermentation in barrel took place at temperatures between 14-17 celsius for up to 25 days. No malolactic fermentation was performed on this wine.

TASTING NOTE (as at 1 November 2018)
Bright pale gold colour. Highly aromatic, with aromas of white peach and jasmine. Tropical flavours abound on the palate with subtle overtones of oak, followed by a richly integrated mouth-feel of pineapple, clementine, quince and peach. Soft, fresh, medium to full bodied; an ideal accompaniment to fish, warm salads and poultry dishes.
