in the cellar : All grapes were sorted before being crushed directly in to the tanks where skin contact is allowed for 4 hours. 6% - 15% of each variety were extracted and inoculated with pure yeast cultures to optimize fermentation at around 16° C. The wine was allowed to naturally clarify under gravity prior to filtering and bottling.
