FARMING: No fining, filtration or addition of any sulphur.
WINEMAKING: The grapes were picked in September 2018 and then macerated for 7 weeks with the first 40 centimetres of grapes destemmed, then the next 40 centimetres whole bunch and so on to create what Catherine calls a millefeuilles! The grapes were then pressed and the juice transferred to stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was still active during the 2019 harvest so she added some Savagnin skins to liven it up.
