100% hand-picked, all fruit is chilled overnight to 12 deg C. Cold soak for 3 – 4 days, then allowed to warm to kick start wild fermentation. Ferments are in small open fermenters – both stainless steel and oak. Parcels are divided into either destemmed or whole bunch. Overall whole bunch in the blend is 40%. Matured in French oak – 10% new, 90% older – for 8 months – a combination of 225L barriques and 4000 Litre oak vats. Bottled by gravity, no fining, no filtration.
