2017 ‘Pigato’ Vermentino. 11.6% Alc. 575 dozen produced.
The Vermentino fruit used to produce this wine was sourced a slight northern aspect of Gullyview vineyard. The vines are 10 years old and planted on red clay on limestone, ‘Terra Rosa’ soil. We hand picked the fruit on the 11th of March at around 11.3 baume. In the winery the fruit was 100% de-stemmed and fermented in open fermenters for an average of 3 weeks. The ferments were hand plunged once a day before pressing. The wine was matured in stainless steel tanks on fine lees for 4 months. Prior to bottling the wine was racked and a small sulphur addition made. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered
