How it was made

6% of the harvest was pressed into older French oak barrels. The remainder of our grapes were pressed to stainless steel tanks where the juice spent three weeks fermenting at cool temperatures.

Post ferment we allowed the wines to rest on yeast lees for a prolonged period to take advantage of the natural benefits of autolysis - mouthfeel and natural antioxidant protection. Vegan friendly & gluten free.
