HARVEST
The grapes were harvested into 450 kg. bins during March 2010. They were then destemmed and pressed and 5g/hl sulphites and 1 g/hl enzymes were added.

WINEMAKING
Maceration took place in the press. This was followed by decantation for a period of 48 hours until the must reached a turbidity of 100 NTU. Then it was fermented at 14°C to 15°C for 21 days.

PRODUCTION AND AGING
Stainless steel tanks were used and pump-overs took place twice a month.The wine was subjected to protein stabilization and bentonite was added for 2 weeks. Finally the wine underwent static cold tartaric stabilization, pad-filtration and was then bottled.

TASTING NOTES
This wine is greenish-yellow in colour and very clean and bright. The bouquet is intensely aromatic with notes of citrus fruit, particularly ripe grapefruit and lime; with touches of green apple and pineapple. This is well-balanced wine with good acidity. In the mouth, it is young, sparkling and light.

• Alcohol by Volume 12.6%
