The project that involved small quantity 6 different grape varieties to create a crisp white wine.

In order to put craftsmanship, all the grapes pressed in basket press to get great aromatic extraction from the grapes. All grapes individually fermented before making the final blend. Initial grape brix was 21, the grapes were picked on purpose to have the acidity therefore we won't be needing excessive amount of sulfur dioxide for the people who has allergies for sulfur dioxide.
