VARIETIES: 50% Gruner Veltliner, 30% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay
WINEMAKING: We separated the juice into a light and hard press fractions which each saw a 10ppm sulfur addition. After settling for a day, we racked each fraction to a new tank for fermentation and vinified separately. The wines started fermenting naturally after about seven days and we transferred the Chenin and Chardonnay to a number of non-stainless steel vessels: large format oak, concrete eggs and sandstone amphora. The Grüner was fermented and aged in stainless steel. We aged the individual wines on their lees for five months, racked and blended them a couple of weeks before canning. No fining, but we decided to filter it because when you are drinking wine out of a can, you want that last sip to be as good as the first.
