Winemaking process

Chardonnay grapes were handpicked in the early morning from our rich limestone soil vineyards.Crate by crate the whole bunches were passed into the press with a very low recovery rate of 420 litres per ton.Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at 14 degrees celsius.Secondary fermentation occurred in the bottle and the wine spent a minimum 24 months on the lees after which it was manually riddled and degorged. Total production of 8000 bottles(750ml).
