60% Riesling & 40% Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc grapes were hand destemmed and fermented naturally for 8 days before being pressed. Later harvested Riesling was fermented on its skins for 6 days before pressing. Blended with Sauvignon Blanc and fermented under temperature control until the desired sugar level was reached. Bottled with an aim of 4.5 bar.
2022 was a lovely growing season. Starting later than normal, the season quickly caught up with lots of hot, sunny days. Rain arrived when needed for the first part of the season, but dried up, stressing the plants a little towards the end of August. The fall was beautiful with warm days and cool nights. 2022 is one to remember.
Tastes like candy apples with wafts of sweet perfume floating through the air. Mild acidity with flavours of a Normandy cider carried through to the finish with fine bubbles.Wild Ferment. Unfiltered. Unsulphured. Drink well chilled.
