Description

Winemakers
Notes

January 2018 was one of the hottest on record, followed by February which was one of the wettest. Warm nights led to low acid levels and an early harvest. The grapes were hand-picked from single cane vines at optimum ripeness and lightly pressed to concrete egg tank, clay amphora and seasoned French oak barrels for wild fermentation. The wine was then aged in these vessels, on full yeast lees for 10 months.
