River Retreat NV BRUT

Winemaking
The grapes were picked during the cool of the night, the fruit was de-stemmed and pumped into the press.  Only the best quality of free run juice was taken off; then clarified before adding yeast.  The fermentation was carried out at a cool temperature to maintain the fruit flavours.  After fermentation the base wine was allowed to rest on yeast lees for 6 months before undergoing a second fermentation to produce the fine bubbles.

The Wine
Light green straw in colour with a fine persistant bead showing lifted aromas of citrus and apple.  Tasting soft and refreshing with light creaminess and balance.

With Food
A delicate wine well matched with soft cheeses and canapes.
