What Alex Mackay (our winemaker) did
The grapes were 100% whole bunch pressed with the juice then fermented in stainless steel. The fermentation was stopped before all the grape sugars were converted to alcohol leaving just 4.5gm of grape sugar per litre of juice. This process balances out the natural acidity of the wine and promotes fruit weight on the palate.
