A very minimalistic handling includes a component of whole bunch, open top vinification and wild yeast ferments, soft pumpovers, hand plunging and an old fashioned basket press. Components complete their ferments and eighteen months maturation in prior use Frost Dodger barrels and seasoned French Cadus et Radoux oak barriques, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
