Louisa MCC Brut

 

VINTAGE:  2017

WINE ELABORATION:

Manual harvesting of early ripening Chardonnay grapes took place prior to the whole-bunch pressing method. After controlled fermentation at 14°C, the finished base-wine were left on the fermentation lees for 6 months to enhance complexity and structure. During this time, the wine was stirred regularly. A yeast rehydration protocol was followed prior to fermentation in bottle where the wine spends a further 9 months on the lees before disgorging took place.
