in the cellar : 

A sorting process in the vineyards ensured that only grapes of exceptional quality were selected, leaving sun-burnt berries on the vines. Once de-stemmed, the berries underwent a second sorting which further removed excess stems, raisin berries and leaves.

No crushing of the berries took place and fermentation started naturally after 3-4 days of cold soaking at 15 degrees Celsius. The grapes were left on the skins between 25 – 35 days and resulted in a velvety smooth tannin structure. Finally the wine was lightly pressed and matured for 18 months in new French oak barrels. The wine was bottled November 2013.
