AWARDS
Veritas 2005 - Bronze
in the vineyard : The grapes for this wine were selected from two 15-year-old vineyards, located on the sunny, north-facing vineyards of Maastrict.

about the harvest: The grapes were picked by hand between 24° and 27° Balling during the latter half of April.

in the cellar : The must was fermented on the skins for seven days until dry and left on the skins for three weeks. Fermentation took place in closed stainless steel tanks. Maximum fruit, colour and tannin extraction from the skins was made possible through continuous computer-regulated pump-over cycles. The skins were removed from the juice immediately after the wine was fermented dry. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured for 9 months in small oak, using a combination of new and second-fill French oak.
