Vinification

Wines go through a cold pre-fermentary maceration to preserve primary aromas, then a series of delestages and pumpovers during fermentation for a more balanced extraction. The juice is fermened for about 14 days at a low temperatures and it is followed by an additional post-fermentation maceration.

Aging

The wine ages for 10-11 months in 100% French oak prior to release

Tasting Note

What a really exciting nose with citrus, crushed stones, oyster shell, orange rind, raspberries and cedar. A touch of reduction. The palate is very lithe and tightly framed with compact, soft tannins, bright acidity and a tangy finish. Drink now. --James Suckling, April 2018
