About The Harvest

Hand-picked and only the best fruit selected in the vineyards.


In The Cellar

Whole bunch crushed followed by fermentation in open fermenters with natural yeasts.

After crushing, the juice remained on the skins for 24 hours. Fermentation took place in rotation tanks between 27°C to 29°C and was completed in small barrels. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in oak casks.

Barrel aged for 16 months in French oak barrels. The final wine was selected from a final selection of barrels to ensure the complexity and balance of the final wine.
