2015 Michelangelo Awards - Silver

Created to satisfy market demand for a lighter, slightly sweet, floral blend. We had the ideal varieties and Jasmine was born. The evocative name reflects the essence of the wine.

about the harvest: 

Chenin Blanc, Riesling and Gewurztraminer were picked slightly earlier than usual to retain freshness and ensure a lighter style. Healthy fruit was handpicked and delivered in the morning while cool.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were crushed and destalked before 6 hours of skin contact. Gentle pressing followed and the juice was settled overnight. Cold fermentation ensured the retention of fruit and after blending and stabilization the wine was bottled.
