All harvesting is done by hand, grapes are crushed and destemmed, a portion is included as whole bunches. Pre-fermentation maceration ensues for seven to ten days until a wild indigenous yeast fermentation ensues. The musts are vinified in small open 500 litre vats for a week at temperatures peaking to 31C, while being treated to pigeage four times daily. Fermentations are followed by several days of maceration for optimal extraction. Batches are pressed straight to a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels to allow for gross lees contact. Following malolactic, components are racked twice throughout the maturation period before being bottled unfiltered.
