In The Cellar

VINIFICATION & PRODUCTION SYSTEM: Fermentation takes place on the skins for about 7 days after which it gets an extended maceration period of about 1 week. The wine then gets pressed into a combination of 70% new and 30% second-fill 300 litre French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation the wine gets racked and is then returned to the barrels for another 18 months before bottling.
