In the Vineyards
Old low yielding vineyards planted in fertile Gamka sandy loam soils are harvested at the beginning of to mid January. Grapes are picked at low sugars to ensure maximum fruit flavours and low alcohols.
In the Cellar
The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure cool temperatures. After the grapes are destemmed and crushed and pumped into a separating tank where the juice and skins are separated. The juice flows by gravity into a settling tank and is settled out overnight. Clear juice is racked into fermentation tanks the next morning and fermentation is started by adding selected yeast. The juice is fermented at 14oC until dry, where after Muscadel juice is added to sweeten and CO2 for Perlé just before bottling.
In the Glass
A natural sweet perlé wine, light-bodied with tones of honey and exotic spice and a fresh, mouth watering aftertaste.
