Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were sorted and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. Only natural yeasts were used during fermentation. Pump-overs were very gentle so as not to over-extract the aggressive tannins of this unusual variety. The wine was bottled without fining.

Aging

After fermentation the wine was aged for 6 months in cement/steainless stell. After bottling we let the wine rest for at least 4 months. No wood is used.
