Production note

The grapes are hand-harvested and then bunches are gently de-stemmed. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks between 7 to 10 days. During fermentation the must is pumped over the skin cap three times a day. After alcoholic fermentation, there is post-fermentation maceration on skins for between 7 to 14 days before pressing. The wine is then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (of which 35% are new).
