in the cellar : The juice was barrel-fermented in a selection of 228 litre Burgundy-shaped French oak barrels (43% new and 57% second-fill Nevers and Burgundian oak barrels from selected French cooperages). The wine was matured "sur lie" in the barrel for 9 months with occasional rolling of the barrels to accentuate the leesy character. 17% tank-fermented Chardonnay was blended with the barrel-fermented wine to ensure a good balance of citrus flavours. Both the tank and barrel-fermented Chardonnay underwent malo-lactic fermentation.
