Production note

All the grapes are handpicked and then de-stemmed before being gently crushed. Fermentation occurs in open-top tanks, over a period of 12-15 days, with pigeage occurring 1-4 times a day. The wine is drained directly into barrels, and pressed using a traditional basket press. The wine undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation.
