Making Techniques The yield of grapes was low during the 2014 harvest, yet they were in ripe and sound condition. The must was cooled and pre-clarified for 20 hours before being fermented with cultured yeast in stainless steel tanks. Due to the purity of the must and a fermentation time of 4 weeks a very fine carbonic acid could be achieved.

Awards and/or Press Quotes
Falstaff 93 Points
Wine Enthusiast 94 Points. ‘On the nose, aromas of russet apple and pear skin mingle with fresh citrus zest and a hint of ripe pear. The palate underlines the ripe fruit which is bedded in a soft but very fresh and concentrated core of savoury yeast. Each layer shimmers with fruit, freshness and spice. The palate has a real dynamic energy and is lovely now but will be even lovelier in two or three years' time.’
