Our grapes were hand sorted and gently crushed. We used native yeast for fermentation
and the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel. After primary
fermentation the wine went through an extended maceration period to soften the
tannins. The wine was aged 22 months in 50% new French oak and 50% once-used
French oak and then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
