Vinification

Part whole-bunch, part destemmed grapes are naturally fermented in an open tank. The fermenting must has two punch-downs daily, allowing a softer, slower extraction of colour and tannin.

Pressed in a basket press and aged in old French oak barrels.

The wine is unfiltered and unfined to ensure maximum flavour and mouthfeel.

Ageing potential

The wine is drinking well now and will continue to improve in the bottle for 5 years or more.
