Fruit was mechanically harvested in cool conditions and immediately destemmed and crushed. Fruit was pressed to 0.8 bar at which point fractions were made and hard-press juice separated. The must was racked to a stainless steel fermenter and was fermented cool with Epernay 2 yeast to 1.8% residual sugar at which point the fermentation was stopped. Wine was settled, racked and cold stabilized naturally. The Finished wine was polish-filtered and prepared for bottling.

Peaches, aoricot and a hint of mango define this wine. The aroma’s leap from the glass and are followed by juicy, mouth-watering flavors supported by crisp acidity and a hint of minerals. This wine works well on its own or paired with spicy foods such as Asian fare. A classic from our own backyard!
