Winemaking Practice:

The grapes were handpicked from the two different blocks at their optimal ripeness. After being lightly crushed the grapes were allowed skin contact for 4 hours after which the grapes were gently pressed in order not to release harsh tannins. The juice was cold fermented at 12 - 16°C in stainless steel tanks with cultured yeast specifically suited to rosè. Reductive winemaking techniques were used to ensure minimal contact with oxygen, thus preserving the fruit character. The wine underwent lees contact for a protracted time for added complexity and mouth feel after which blending took place. The residual sugar was raised with grape concentrate. Bottling followed after a light fining, cold stabilisation and filtration.
