Vinification details

This wine is very much made in a style with minimum interference. All the grape components were hand harvested and brought to the cellar in small lug boxes. The Viognier and Harlevelu was whole bunch pressed and juice was extracted in an oxidative way. Meaning no sulphur and optimal exposure to aeration. From here the juice went directly to older barrels for natural fermentation. The Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc components were bunch sorted, destemmed and crush. Juice was settled for 24 hours where after the clean juice was racked. Inoculated with non-accharomyces yeast and allowed fermentation to commence. After about 5 ⁰Balling was fermented, the must was chilled and taken to barrel the following day to complete fermentation. All components matured in barrel on the gross lees for 6 months with weekly battonage.

... this is a very stylish, textured, refreshing white from Lemberg, which definitely amounts to more than the sum of its parts.
