about the harvest: 

All grapes were hand picked and hand sorted in the vineyards.

in the cellar : The grapes are being destemmed and crushed directly into tanks a pure yeast culture was inoculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 liter barrels of French oak types. 85% of the wine spent 12 months is barrel before bottling and labeling.
