Description

The grapes were hand-harvested at an average of 25° brix. Next the grapes were destemmed and hand-sorted to remove raisins and green stems. Fermentation took place in open-top French oak fermenters (foudre) and manual punch downs (pigeage) were done twice a day. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the wine was basket pressed and transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, with 45% of the barrels being new oak. In total, the wine spent 22 months maturing in oak barrels.
