Harvesting & Fermentation:
The grape varietals for the wine were sourced from premium vineyards in Franschhoek & Botriver. Grapes were harvested by hand in the early hours of the morning and underwent a second sorting and selection to achieve this Rosé style.
No skin contact took place, to retain the light elegant colour. Cold fermentation at 13 ̊C took place in stainless steel tanks lasting 7 days before ageing on the lees for 4 months. 10% of the wine was fermented and aged in small French oak barrels. The grape varietals were specifically chosen to complement certain characteristics of this French style Blanc de Noir. All varietals were vinified individually and blended before bottling.
Ready for your enjoyment.
