Vinification of this wine is still evolving as we learn to voice the sense of establishment that these old vines bring. We destem without crushing before ferment, then soak on skins for up to a week. A small portion we whole bunch ferment and work specifically to draw out aromatics & structure. Primary ferments are fairly quick, hot & hand plunged, then sit on skins for a while, aiming for extraction levels just right for each vat. Wine then matures in Burgundian coopered French oak for a year before blending & bottling unfiltered.
