    Paul’s love for Alsace whites whilst working there is the reason he makes both his ‘dry’ whites in oak, low yields and time on lees. Sourced from Rocky Point vineyard. Yields = 35 hct per hectare of this superb steep site. The 1st major glacier which formed the region didn’t make it to the Rocky Point site and latter ones didn’t expose the Schist as early as the Home Block further North, hence why the Schist hasn’t decomposed, meaning the Rocky Point vineyard is still a solid mass of Rock. This Schist rock is very predominant in the Rocky Point Vineyard - parent material of the whole region. When they do soil testing each year the issue they have is they do not enough nitrogen/organic matter in the soil due to the massive amount of mineral/solid rock that the vines are growing on. To combat this they do cover cropping to help with the nitrogen deficiency, using home-made compost.

    Hand Picked - whole bunch pressed - slow over 6 hours. Settled overnight in tank - then transferred to barrel - takes as much fine/fluffy lees as he can. Wild Ferment in seasoned barrel (100% old). Slow ferment, 3 to 4 months due to temperatures. Once the ferment finishes, Paul doesn’t take off any lees for the entire elevage. Bottled before the start of the next harvest - 11 months approx. No Malo. Between 5 to 8 grams residual sugar. No Malo. Filtered due to sugar.
