HOW IS IT MADE – By getting it from vine to winery within the hour. The green stems from the bunches are removed and held in the press for half an hour before extracting the juice – this gives it a wonderful colour. The juice is fermented in a stainless steel tank and kept from fermenting too hot. The wine is kept on lees for over a month to bring the creamy notes to the wine. It is then finely filtered before bottling.
