Low yielding vineyards, planted in sandy loam soils of the fertile Gamka river valley, are harvested around mid-January. Grapes are picked at low sugars to ensure maximum fruit flavours, good acidity and low alcohols.
The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure cool temperatures. After the grapes are destemmed, crushed and pumped into a separating tank where the juice and skins are separated.
The juice then flows by gravity into a settling tank and is settled out overnight. Clear juice is racked into fermentation tanks the next morning and fermentation is started by adding selected yeast. The juice is fermented at 14oC until dry, where after muscadel juice is added to sweeten and CO2 for perlé just before bottling.
Colour: Beautiful light rose petal colour with fine fizzy bubbles.
Bouquet: Exotic muscat and spicy aromas, with hints of strawberries and candyfloss.
Taste: Fresh tropical fruit and strawberries, light bodied, with a good balance between sugar and acidity.
Food pairing: Great on its own or served with fresh summer salads, charcuterie or light meals.
