More info

All the grapes were hand picked on the 20th of February and destemmed with a small mechanical destemmer straight into 2 ton capacity open wooden fermenters. The pulp was chilled down with cooling plates submerged into the tanks. The wine was naturally co-fermented for about 10 days and pump overs were performed twice daily to daily during the end of the fermentation. The free run juice was racked to a settling tank and the pulp was pressed in an old champagne press. The wine settled in tank for about 4 weeks before being aged in 3rd – 4th fill 300L French oak barrels for 14 months. A fresh egg white fining was done in barrel and the wine was lightly filtered at bottling.
