Handpicked in the cool early morning, the grapes were crushed, destemmed and gently pressed. After 48hrs cold settling, the juice is racked and transferred to barrels for fermentation by natural yeasts. The wine matures on lees for 8 months before being filtered and bottled. Malo-lactic fermentation is avoided to preserve the wine’s elegance and exceptionality.
