Wine Analysis Alcohol: 13.0% pH: 3.41 TA: 6.5

Destemmed only and left on skins for 6 hours to extract minimal colour with no SO2 addition. Gently pressed to extract the subtle free run juice with purity of fruit. Settled for 5 days and racked when juice was clear. Fermented with a hybrid yeast strain to give complexity and richness to the wine. Ferment was run at cool temperatures and took 28 days to ferment to dryness... Aged on lees post ferment for 6 months to build texture and body in the final wine while adding a subtle complexity. Clarified and bottled early October.
