Winemakers Notes

All grapes were harvested early maintaining freshness of acidity and went direct to press-minimal skin contact leading to pale salmon color and subtle grip. The must was fermented cold preserving freshness of floral aromatics and matured in stainless steel giving vibrant fruit intensity and long crisp finish.
