These are wines produced without the addition of sulfur dioxide (sulfites) at any stage of the winemaking process. The end result is a range of wines that are Sulfite Free. Stellar Winery has developed itself as the world leader for 100% Organic “No Added Sulfite” wine production.

TASTING NOTES
This intense, dark ruby colored wine has aromas of roasted red pepper with notes of vanilla that combine seamlessly with flavors of cherry tobacco and ripe dark berries.  The firm tannins and acid add structure.

VINEYARDS
Along the Olifants river valley on the West coast, between the town of Trawal (Stellar) and Vredendal.  Pristine weather for organic viticulture with an annual average temperature of 77° F and less than 7 days of cloud cover. Total annual rain fall of less than 8” but unlimited water from an aqueduct for irrigation.  30 – 68 meters above sea level. Over 900 snail-eating ducks are the only pesticides allowed.

BEHIND THE CELLAR DOOR
Produced from the finest high-yielding  grapes in the region. The grapes are first cooled to 0°C before destemming and gas macerated for 7 days at 13°C – 16°C. Natural fermentation takes place in stainless steel or flexi-tanks by controlled temperature increases to 26°C for a further 80 – 95 days.  All pump-overs done by inert gas and gravity. Lightly wooded with French Oak. Bottling with latest technology and onsite ingenuity.
