Vinification
Grapes were manually harvested at 23ºB and juice obtained by subjecting the whole bunches to a gentle tank press. After allowing the juice to settle overnight the clean juice was separated and wine yeast added. The temperature during fermentation was maintained at 15ºC. Towards the final stages of fermentation the temperature was allowed to rise to approximately 20ºC thereby facilitating the best conditions to complete the process. Protein stabilization was achieved with a bentonite fining and thereafter the wine was made tartrate stable at -2ºC.
