About the grapes
The fruit for this wine was handpicked at a point where it was mature and balanced so as to produce a wine that is complex and not overpowered by any one component. The grapes were then crushed, pressed, and cold settled. Fermentation of the clarified juice was conducted in stainless steel vessels and the fermentation was kept at 55 degrees in order to maintain the fresh fruit characters of the wine. The wine was then blended, allowing the various components to integrate and produce the crisp fresh fruit driven wine before you.
