Comments
The grapes were hand picked at optimal flavour ripeness, gently pressed and settled to tank. The wine was then fermented with a handful of selected yeast strains. A portion was fermented in old French oak barrels resulting in complexity and structure. The wine was then left to mature on gross yeast lees to enhance structure and mouthfeel. The wine was fined, filtered and bottled on 28 February 2017.
