Alheit Vineyards 'Fire by Night' 2022

Product description

The grapes were hand sorted and whole bunch pressed. The juice is very lightly settled with no additions to the raw juice, wild fermentation in cement eggs, foudres, and old barrels of various sizes. Fermentation lasted for about one month. The wine was kept on lees for around 12 months, then rested in tank on fine lees without fining for a further six months prior to bottling. Very simple, careful winemaking.

The wine is bright and bristling. The youthful nose shows some thatchy reduction, fynbos, and green citrus. The pallet is very fine-boned, with a firm pithy structure and mouth-watering acidity.
