FARMING: Biodynamic, Organic, No Sulfur
WINEMAKING: Grapes are hand harvested at 3 different times as the individual bunches of fruit are ripe. The first harvest (65% of the total wine) is fermented in stainless steel and then aged in demijohn for 3-4 months. The second harvest (25% of the total wine) is quickly macerated on the skins before fermentation, then pressed to stainless steel for fermentation, then ages 3-4 moths in demijohn. The 3rd harvest (10% of the total wine) is macerated on the skins for 3 weeks during fermentation and then aged for 4 months in a 500 liter oak barrel. The 3 wines are then blended together and bottled, unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur.
AGE OF VINES: 50+ years
