Vinification Notes

The grapes were placed in cooling chambers where the temperature was rapidly lowered from 28 to 30°C to just 4 to 6°C within a few hours. Having been chilled, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and cold soaked at temperatures of 8°C for approximately four to six hours (hence the name of the wine '4-6H' ). The entire batch was then pressed and the free-run must and first press juice were retained. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 16 to 18°C and lasted for two weeks. The wine was gently fined, cold stabilised and underwent minimal filtration prior to bottling.
