About The Harvest
All grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyards.
In The Cellar
A second berry sorting was done in the cellar, before a pure yeast culture was inoculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3 - 5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French oak types. (25% New).
