This was harvested in September.  The whole-clusters were pressed in a pneumatic press; the juice sedimented overnight and fermented in tank. Not disgorged. Aged 6 months in bottle.

Acid: 5.2 g/L Residual sugar: 0 g/L

Sulphur: Nothing added, 5 mg/L total

Soil: The shell-limestone soil has a fat, fertile clay layer. The vines are very strong, and therefore very tricky to manage. It’s the most work-intense vineyard, so the yield has its price.
