Fruit was 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 VL3 yeast to dryness. Wine was settled, racked and cold stabilized naturally. The Finished wine was polish-filtered and bottled in March 2018.
