About the wine
100% Colombard from 25 year-old vines grown in Swartland, South Africa some 30km from the ocean. Zero/zero pét-nat. 9.5%ABV
Hand-harvested, direct pressed, then fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 4 degrees. It was racked 7 times during fermentation to remove the sediment. At a sugar of 60g/l it was bottled under crown cap where it was left to finish fermentation and build up a natural carbonation. After 10 months the bottles were riddled and disgorged and topped with the same wine (from other decanted bottles) and crown capped again. No SO2 was ever added to the wine and neither was any settling or fining agent.
