500L French Oak Puncheons
Whole cluster bunches were foot-tread in the picking bins to allow for skin contact of the juice. A low pressure pressing was made and the juice settled for 36 hours. Fermentation was carried out in 500L French Oak puncheons. The puncheons are specifically sourced for 3 yr seasoned, tight-grain wood with medium toast level. Fermentation started spontaneously and the wines remained in barrel, sur lees for 11 months. After racking to a stainless tank the wine continued to age for another 6 months before bottling.
