“Normal service resumed, after the fuller, richer 2020, we are back to the leaner style of previous vintages. We still continue to have skin contact time for the Chenin and Viognier for half the fermentation.  We then pressed, taking as much lees and sediment to barrel to complete the fermentation. This gives the wine great weight and texture with our regular batonnage. We also did a small portion of tank fermentation Chenin Blanc for extra primary fruit.  The Sauvignon Blanc, as per normal practice, is pressed directly to barrel without settling to ferment. All the components spent 11 months in French Oak barrels of which the majority were old. We left all the wine on gross lees with regular batonnage to flesh out the wine. We racked and made up the blend and the only time we added SO2 was to protect the wine for the bottling process.”
