about the harvest: Grapes were harvested at 23° B.

in the cellar :  The juice was obtained by subjecting the whole bunches to a gentle tank press. After allowing settling for two days the clean juice was separated and wine yeast added. Initial temperatures were controlled at around 14°C but towards the final stages of fermentation it was allowed to rise to approximately 16°C thereby facilitating optimum conditions for completion of the process. After clarification the wine was stabilised for protein and tartrates.
