Tiny berries allowed the production of wines with highly concentrated varietal character. Whole bunch fermentation, punch down by hand twice per day. Fermentation lasted 14 days, after fermentation the wine was basket pressed and placed into older barrels. The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation in the barrel. After MFL was completed the wine was given a racking and sulphur. The wine then spent a further 6 months in barrel, 9 months in total before bottling in December 2017. Perfumed and complex, it's a beautiful expression of this now in-vogue workhorse variety.
