Temperature controlled fermentation over three weeks and left to develop on lees for 16 weeks. ‘Tirage’ bottled in August of 2012 for bottle fermentation and left ageing on lees for a further 60 months to enhance aroma, flavour and mouth-feel. Riddled and disgorged with minimal liquor addition to retain natural fruit flavours and bottle development.
