about the harvest: One of the more difficult years for Chardonnay due to cold evenings and strong winds during our flower season. This also led to very low production and uneven ripening of the grapes. We harvested in stages to make sure we only receive optimal ripening fruit.

in the cellar : The grapes was harvested in cooler conditions and during the crushing and fermentation kept at low temperatures. Fermentation is only done in stainless steel tanks, no wood is added. We have the wine on the lees for up to 4 months depending on the vintage.
