Vinification details

Harvest took place in mid-January, with the grapes coming in at 23° Balling. Only free run juice was used for this wine; after settling and acid adjustment, it was inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation was colder than usual to capture upfront fruit flavours. Two specially-selected tanks were blended and bottled early to enjoy as fresh as possible.

Terrific balance, offsetting vibrant, modern style with a lovely bit of savoury, limey finesse. A little star.
