Vinification

The grapes were picked two weeks later than normal and were destemmed, sorted and fermented in open top fermenters. The cap was punched every 2 hours for 64 hours until the right extraction was achieved. After pressing, malolactic fermentation was done in 16 French oak barrels and one American oak barrel. The wine matured for 18 months in wood.

Every vintage is unique, and that is what we try to capture in our wines. Wet winter, with dry conditions towards harvesting resulted in a wine with purity of fruit and fine tannin structure.

Best to drink from 2016 onwards.

Only 5200 bottles made.
