In the winery the fruit was 100% desteemed to open fermenters where natural ferment occurred over a 3 week period. The ferments where lightly hand plunged once or twice a day before being pressed to tank to settle off large lees.

The wine then received a small sulphur addition, was racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The wine is aged in bottle for 12 months before release. KOERNER
