Cellar

The juice was allowed some skin contact with the grapes. The juice starts a wild yeast fermentation, before it is inoculated with a special brew of commercial yeast suitable to produce rich and ripe flavours.

The Muscat is picked as noble late harvest when the grapes have picked up Botrytis and fermented to a residual sugar of about 140g/L. This component of sweet wine is then blended down with Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc to a semi-sweet level. It is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks over a period of 2 to 3 weeks between 11 – 15°C and left on its primary fermentation lees for at least 3 months before refinement and bottling.
