We harvested these grapes in late Oct yet still at a relatively low brix level, resulting in an aromatic and flavorful wine. It is versatile as an aperitivo or to accompany a light dessert. With its lower alcohol and modest level of residual sugar, it is very intriguing, nicely balancing both delicacy and expressiveness.
It was cold fermented using a yeast strain selected for this style of wine and without a malo-lactic conversion. Post fermentation it was clarified, fined, racked for additional clarity, followed by filtration to bottle.
Bottled in Dec 2012; 7.9% alcohol, pH 3.28, TA 5.2 g/l & RS 76 g/l
Our descriptors: perfumed and intriguing; lively flavors of candied ginger and ripe tropical fruits like mango, papaya and star fruit.
