From the harvest through to the perfect blend, every step in the winemaking process is performed separately for each grape variety.
After hand sorting and destemming , the grapes are cold soaked in tanks for three days. Alcoholic fermentation takes place for two weeks, after which the grapes undergoes an additional 15 days of skin contact before pressing. After a brief period of stabilization, each wine is transferred to predominately new French oak barrels to age for 15 months. The final blend is then selected from the various varieties and barrels and the wine is bottled after natural stabilization with minimal clarification and filtering. After bottling, the wine continues to age for at least one more year in our cellars.
