More Information

In the cellar

After crushing and destalking, about 4 hours of skin contact is allowed before gently pressing. The earlier picked portion was whole bunch pressed. After overnight settling the clear juice is spontaneously cold fermented. Fifty percent of the wine was fermented in oak but removed immediately after fermentation. The blend remains “sur lie” for 2 months prior to stabilization and bottling.

In the vineyard

The majority of the grapes are picked mid-season by hand at optimum ripeness. A component was picked earlier to introduce freshness. 2022 was a healthy vintage and there was virtually no botrytis. The fruit comes from 3 blocks including 40 % old bush vines.

Ageing

This wine should keep for up to five years and the new style typifies the terroir it grows in.

Cultivar

Chenin Blanc
