About The Harvest
We selected our grapes and vineyard blocks especially to make this style of wine. We harvested a little bit earlier to capture more fruit and acid freshness.
In The Cellar
We try to maintain freshness in this style of chardonnay, so therefore we work in very cold, ± 18° C, conditions during the whole crushing and skin contact period. After that we allow the wine to ferment at temperatures between 14° C - 18° C. It takes about 12 days to finish fermentation.

The wine was kept on the lees for not longer than a month and a half.
