Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Winemaker's Notes: Gravity is our top blend of three Dijon clones namely 667,777 and 115. The grapes were hand picked from the 1 s t until the 9th of October 2004 at optimal physiologcal ripeness and 21.8 - 24.8 Brix. Using gravity the fruit was crushed into open top 4-ton fermenters where cold soaking took place for 4 to 8 days. Following this, the juice was fermented using commercial and wild yeast strains. Once completed, the wine was run by gravity to 2/3 new French Oak barrels and the rest read more...Winemaker's Notes: Gravity is our top blend of three Dijon clones namely 667,777 and 115.

Once completed, the wine was run by gravity to 2/3 new French Oak barrels and the rest a mixture of older French Oak from different cooperages to mature for 11 months. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and was completed during the spring of 2005. All the clones were vinified and aged separately after which we selected the top ones to suit our style for the Gravity 2004. (hide)
