Handling:

Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery’s sorting table intact. It is then foot stomped in bins and period of skin  maceration is passed (3-15 hours) before being whole bunch pressed and run, by gravity, into a settling tank. After 12 hours of settling the juice is racked, retaining fine lees, and run separately into seasoned French oak barrels (40% of total) and a horizontal fermentation tank.
