in the vineyard : The La Beryl is a traditional straw-dried sweet wine named after Charles Back’s mother. The wine was produced using Chenin Blanc and Muscat grapes grown on decomposed granite soils on the Fairview farm

about the harvest: The fruit was harvested very carefully by hand over a three-day period. Bunches were individually picked once each was perfectly ripe. Harvesting took place at approximately 22 brix. Packed into small lug boxes, the grapes were transported to a well-ventilated shed, where they were carefully laid out to dry on racks lined with straw. It took four weeks for the grapes to dry to a raisin state, by which time they had lost up to 75% of their moisture.
