About The Harvest
A cooler ripening season led to a later harvest of these bush vine grapes.
Yield: 5t/ha

In The Cellar
The cooler conditions helped maintain freshness with a lower sugar level and resultant lower alcohol. The juice underwent cold fermentation for 12 days and was left on the gross lees for 2 months before bottling.
