Viticulture & Wine Making

The vineyards are tended by hand allowing for careful management of the individual vines from pruning, leaf plucking, shoot-thinning right through to harvesting. The wine is fermented in small open top fermenters, and typically has a 5-7 day pre-ferment cold soak, with punch downs throughout fermentation, then 5-7 days extended maceration. All parcels are wild yeast ferments with about 10% being whole bunches. The wine is matured for 12 months in French oak, of which about 20% is new.  Malolactic fermentation occurs in the spring - lots are then selected and blended before bottling without fining or filtration.
