Winery Tasting Notes
The wine shows youthful, raisin/rose petal aromas and flavours – a fruit driven wine.
The grapes are harvested at high baumé (17 Bé plus preferred). These grapes are then de-stemmed with the resultant must placed into tank. The must is then inoculated with yeast and a partial fermentation of the juice is undertaken (usually 2 to 3 Bé depending upon initial fruit ripeness). Once this level of fermentation is complete the must is placed into the press for juice extraction. The fermenting juice obtained from the pressing is fortified with neutral grape spirit (~ 96% alc.) to 18% alc. to arrest the fermentation. The resultant wine is then aged in old wood.
