About The Harvest

The grapes were harvested between February and March 2013

In The Cellar

After being de-stalked and lightly crushed, the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks. After malolactic fermentation the various components were sent to 225l barrels for 14 months. The wine was matured in a selection of French and American oak, mainly 2nd to 4th fill. The components were kept separate for maturation and then blended to achieve the style that Don Goatti is looking for. The wine was lightly filtered before bottling.
