About The Harvest
Hand picked on 12 February 2004 at 21° Balling from 20 year old vines. Yield is 7 tons/ha. Fruit was stringently sorted on a sorting table prior to crushing.
In The Cellar
After destalking and crushing, the mash went through a must cooler directly into the press. The press was filled, drained and pressing was conducted up to 1.8 bar. The juice was fermented with a selected, pure yeast culture called DV10. Later 9% wooded Sauvignon blanc was added which spent 3 months in a small third fill French barrel. Viognier (8%) was also added to enhance the mid palate and fruit flavors.
