Picked at Wismer Vineyard on November 7th as grape sugars averaged 22.9° Brix.
After fermentation in neutral oak cuves, the wine was transferred for malo-lactic fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels, 10% of which were new. After eight months it was racked to older barrels to age for another five months.
At the time of bottling, in December 2018, alcohol was measured at 13%; residual sugar at 1.5 grams per Litre and titratable acidity, 6.8 grams per litre and pH: 3.45.
Only 242 cases were bottled
Serve near 14° C with roast pork or lamb, beef stew or pasta in herbed tomato sauce.
