Production note

The wine is crafted by macerating and fermenting the different grape varieties individually in open-top 500-litre oak barrels. Punching down is done by hand for the softest possible extraction, and a vertical wooden press is used to ensure there is less skin-against-skin friction. After barrel ageing the varieties separately for 18 months, the blend is then created and aged in bottle for 1 year before release.
