about the harvest: The grapes were harvested at different levels of ripeness to ensure complexity of flavours and fresh, delicate acidity. the fruit was picked early in the morning to preserve flavours, kept cold, and pressed immediately on arrival at the winery.

in the cellar : The resulting juice was treated reductively, keeping oxygen out and preserving the delicate flavours. the wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperature and then kept on the lees for another three months to enhance mouthfeel.
