WINEMAKING: Hand harvested. Fermented in open top barriques with native yeast and 50% whole cluster. Maceration and fermentation last 24 days with no temp control. Very delicate handling of the ferments, either very light wetting of the cap or very delicate punch downs. After fermentation, wines are aged for one year in a 5 year old 500L barrel.
