Hand picked and immediately destemmed into one tonne open fermenters, where the wine ferments on skins for just under two weeks. The wine was then pressed to seasoned French barriques, where it rested on full solids for 8 months, before being racked once and blended back together prior to bottling. This wine sees no additions of any kind, aside for a small amount of SO2 at bottling.
