We utilize traditional winemaking practices that are labour intensive but within a modern understanding of its ways. The grapes from the four different varieties were destemmed, lightly crushed into separate small open fermenters and naturally fermented using their own naturally occurring yeasts for an average of 12 days. The wine is then transferred via gravity (to avoid pump shock) to French oak barriques (approximately 20% new) and left to mature for approximately 18 months. Prior to bottling the separate varieties are carefully blended to produce a balanced wine.
