About The Harvest

Yield: 8-10t/ha
Balling at Harvest: 25 - 28°B

In The Cellar

Destemmed into open fermenters, punch down during fermentation. Once the desired sugar levels have been reached, the fermentation is stopped by adding alcohol to the fermenting must. The wine is aged in old barrels. Different vintages are used to do the blends.

Additional Information

The two factors which play the most important role in determining the character and quality of a wine are nature (soil, climate and location) and the
human hand (cultivar choice, viticultural practices and winemaking techniques). Of these two, nature is considered to be the more important factor
with a greater influence.
