Cellar

Grapes are allowed short skin contact and natural settling in tank. 16% is fermented in 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels and 84% in stainless steel after which both portions are kept 5 months on the fermentation lees before it is blended and fined. Fermentation is a slow natural process and wild yeast ferments like this can take up to 3 months to finish.
