VINTAGE: Grapes bunches were thinned and hand harvested to maximise flavours and fruit quality. Grapes were picked on root/earth daysand fruit/seed days in the biodynamic calendar.
WINEMAKING: The fruit was crushed and de-stemmed and transferred to open tanks and fermented wild. Regular hand plunging over 14 days was carried out in the winery. The fermenting juice was then transferred into a French oak barrels (25% new, balance 1 year old) for maturation and to wait for secondary fermentation in the spring before bottling in the new year.
