Grapes come from unirrigated bushvines withyields of between 7 and 8 ton/ha. Handharvested at optimum ripeness at 24°B. Allgrapes are crushed and skin contact of ±4 hours are allowed to extract the flavours. Light bag press follows and the cleaned juice is fermented to retain maximum aroma. At required sugar
level the fermentation process is stopped to produce a well balanced, natural sweet wine.
