The juice was then settled for 72 hours with a settling enzyme before it was racked. Different yeasts were used to enhance the flavor profile of the wine. Fermentation took about 18 days at 16 – 22 ˚C.
Tasting Notes – Pale gold, clear and bright. Has forthcoming fruit, yellow cling peaches lifted by citrus peel, giving a youthful, flavorful effect. The main appeal is the wine’s balance and fruit vitality, underpinned by lively, vibrant freshness.
