WINEMAKING: This wine is made exclusively from Merlot grown in Yamanashi. The grapes were destemmed and fermented in two separate batches in amphora; one for six days on skins, the other for fifteen. The wine is then pressed off back into amphora for a quick six-month élevage. The wine is then blended and settled in stainless steel before bottling.
