Wine Making The fruit is handpicked and destemmed into 2 ton open fermenters as whole berries and left to start fermenting naturally. It is not touched until a 2-3° drop in baume , which allows fermentation to occur inside the grape berry and increases the aromatics of the finished wine. Once fermentation starts strongly, the ferment is hand plunged 2-3 times per day for 15 days. The wine is left on skins for post ferment maturation for up to 15 days, then pressed off skins and racked to barrel. 10 % new oak is used, then it is racked and returned to barrel in the summer. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration in the autumn of the following year, giving it a total of 10 months in oak.
Tasting Notes

A perfumed nose of red cherries and brambley aromatics. Leads to a palate that is playful and lively with juicy red fruit and glimpses of forest floor. Clean acidity and gentle tannins create a vibrant and balanced wine.
