Production note

The grapes were hand-picked, the fruit was 95% de-stemmed with a high proportion of whole berries going into the fermenters. After an extended cold soak the wines started fermentation with indigenous “wild” yeast. The fermenting wine was hand-plunged only and once alcoholic fermentation was complete the wine was drawn off its skins to barrel. The wine spent 18 months in French oak barriques from a variety of Burgundy cooperages and forests of which 37% were new.
