Grapes are gently de stemmed, allowing whole berries to remain intact. After a week of cold soak, each parcel is separately vinified through mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Batches are hand plunged for optimal extraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Ferments are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for completion of malolactic and a term of maturation before assemblage into the finished wine.
