About The Harvest
Muscat Ottonel, Morio Muscat, Riesling and Gewurztraminer were picked slightly earlier than usual to retain freshness and ensure a lighter style. Healthy fruit was handpicked and delivered in the morning while cool.
In The Cellar
The grapes were crushed and destalked before 6 hours of skin contact. Gentle pressing followed and the juice was settled overnight. Cold fermentation ensured the retention of fruit and after blending and stabilization the wine was bottled.
Created to satisfy market demand for a lighter, slightly sweet, floral blend. We had the ideal varieties and Jasmine was born. The evocative name reflects the essence of the wine.
