Notes about product

Winemaking notes

20% whole cluster and 80% whole berry fruit is hand- loaded into 225-500 liter new French oak barrels for a 30-day fermentation. The fermentation temperature is kept low and the cap management is done by hand to ensure soft, gentle flavors and tannin extraction. Wild yeasts are used with malolactic fermentation also in barrel. The wine is aged in French oak for 18 months.
