Our Rosella’s Vineyard grapes are hand-picked and sorted for quality before being gently whole- cluster pressed and fermented using a variety of specially selected yeasts. Our Rosella’s Chardonnay undergoes a complete malo-lactic fermentation to enhance richness and complexity. In addition, each barrel has been hand stirred every two weeks until shortly before blending and bottling.
