FERMENTATION
The grapes were handpicked in the early morning and force-cooled to 4 °C. The Chenin Blanc was pressed whole bunch and the juice settled in tanks at 5 C for 48 hours.
The clear juice was racked, separately inoculated and fermented with Vin 13 and Vin 7 yeast. The fermentation temperature was kept between 11 and 14 °C. After alcoholic fermentation the wines were racked and matured for 4 months on its fine lees, which was stirred every week to add greater richness to the palate.
The wine was cold and protein stabilised and filtered through a fine sheet filtration prior to bottling.
