about the harvest:

Production: 2400 bottles

in the cellar : Crushing took place early the next morning after chilling the grapes overnight. Juice were drawn off during crushing to minimize extraction and maximize elegance. The juice were then settled, racked after two days and inoculated for fermentation. Fermentation was done at temperatures under 16⁰C to preserve delicate aromas. All varietals were fermented separately and only blended post fermentation for maximum complexity. The sweetness is from the grapes’ natural sugar.
