Pour in a black Riedel glass and see who picks it as a white wine!!
A great food wine! Well suited to a range of fresh seafood dishes but would compliment chicken and pork dishes with ease.
Winemaking: The fruit was handpicked early specifically for this wine. Interestingly, the same vines produce two other wine styles, rosé and red. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed. The free-run juice was immediately separated from the skins and transferred to a single stainless-steel fermenter. Frequent bâtonnage helped build texture and mouthfeel. The wine completed natural malolactic fermentation after 4 months. No SO2 was added until bottling. The wine was minimally filtered and bottled unfined.
