Production information

Production note

All the fruit is harvested by hand and cooled down overnight to 8°C in the cold room. The bunches are hand-sorted, destemmed and crushed in to stainless steel tanks. All transfers of grape must and juice are made by gravity to preserve the structure and integrity of the wine. The juice is settled clear over a couple of days and racked in to barrel for fermentation to start. The fermentations are 100% indigenous, i.e. no cultured or fabricated yeast is added. Batonnage (lees stirring) is applied
