AWARDS

Veritas 2010 - Silver

about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked

in the cellar : After harvesting, grapes were sorted twice before a pure yeast culture, B13, was inoculated The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French oak.
