The approach to this wine is all about protection. Gentle pressing to avoid any bitterness from the skins and minimal exposure to oxygen through the whole process ensures the retention of delicate fruit aromas and flavours. Fermentation is temperature controlled in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast strains. Post fermentation the wine is racked to barriques to mature and add texture.
