Appearance: Pale straw colour

Wine-growing Area: Western Cape, Kleinriver Ward
About The Harvest
All grapes were hand picked.
In The Cellar
The grapes were sorted twice before skin contact in the press. Pure yeast cultures were inoculated in the juice after pressing in order to optimize the fermentation process at around 16ºC. No extended lees contact was allowed after fermentation and the wine was allowed to naturally clarify itself under gravity prior to filtering and bottling.
