Winemaking (Traditional + Modern)
After harvest, grapes were pressed whole cluster and settled for 2 days as juice. Clear juice helps to retain the purity and focus of this wine. The first fermentation was completed at 55°F over 3 weeks. The fermentation sediment was kept with the wine until bottling in December. The wine was bottled with fresh yeast and a small amount of sugar. After 3 months in bottle, the yeast had consumed the sugar, the sediment was removed, and we added back a small amount of wine and sugar. After a light dosage, the bottles were capped again in order to preserve the natural youth and freshness of the wine. We prefer crown caps as a final closure. They are trusted across the world to age wines before disgorging. They are a technical closure that allows minimal variation between bottles.
