Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) Crushed and pressed immediately after de-stemming, the juic was barrel-fermented in traditional 228-litre French oak barrels (92% new and 8% second fill) from selected Burgundian cooperages (Damy, Chassin and Rousseau). The barrels were inoculated with a selection of French yeast. A percentage of the wine went through natural fermentation. The wine was matured “sur lie” for 13 months, with regular barrel-rolling to accentuate the rich, leesy character.
