Soils: Fluvial, glacial silts and gravels.
Vine Age: 11 year old vines with VSP gravels.
Winemaker’s comments: Only botrytised bunches with more than 50% Noble Rot were selected for this wine. The bunches were “foluees” (trampled by foot) and pressed the next day. The wine was fermented in stainless steel for 3 weeks.
