WINEMAKERS COMMENTS

Some stems included in the ferments to build complexity and give a savoury balance to the fruit. Specialty yeasts were chosen for the same reason. This was quite a hands on wine, with hand plunging up to 5 or 6 times a day during fermentation.

FOOD MATCH

Pair with caramelised onion tart or a herb incrusted white fish.
