about the harvest: The grapes were harvested between 22 and 24.5° Balling in February 2003.

in the cellar : The grapes were de-stalked, crushed and pumped into the press. After a very gentle pressing, the juice was pumped into stainless steel tanks where it settled overnight. The clear juice was racked off into the fermentation tanks where it was inoculated with cultured yeast. After the wine had fermented dry, it was racked off its lees blended, stabilised and given a light filtration before bottling.
