Description

CellarGrapes were kept on the skin for cold maceration for at least 3 days. This also allows some natural fermentation to take place. The juice is then inoculated with a homemade brew of yeasts including three different commercial strains.

It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 24° - 28° C and kept on its skins for 4 - 7 days with regular pump overs and punch downs. After fermentation, the free run juice is drained and the skins are gently pressed. It finishes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
