Description

Winemakers
Notes

After a beautifully warm but excessively dry summer, harvest began three weeks ahead of normal. It was an amazing vintage with pristine fruit, small berries, and great concentration. The grapes were hand-picked from two cane vines at optimum ripeness and lightly pressed to concrete egg tank, clay amphora and seasoned French oak barrels for wild fermentation. The wine was then aged in these vessels, on full yeast lees for 10 months.
Unfined | Unfiltered | Vegan.
