Picked weeks before our white wine’s grapes are fully matured. 12-14 kilo picking bins to avoid crushing of the fruit. Chilled immediately and transported to the island by boat and up to the winery. Whole-bunch pressed for up to 5 hours. Fermentation takes place for about 3 weeks at cool temperatures. We cold stabilize, filter then bottle. Minimum intervention.
Pairs well with fish, lighter meats, cheeses and salads.
