Winemaker Notes

Grapes for this Estate wine are harvested over a three week period, with Roussanne coming into the cellar two weeks after the earlier Viognier and Marsanne harvested in between. Grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice chilled and settled before fermentation was pitched. A long cool ferment in stainless steel.

Cooperage Notes

Fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel.
