about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked and sorted in the vineyards.

in the cellar : All grapes were hand picked and sorted twice before a pure yeast culture, B13, was inoculated The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre barrels of French oak.
