The 1.2 tons of Pinot Noir grapes were carefully sorted and crushed whole berry into a 1.5 ton fermenter. After 3 days cold soak and allowing spontaneous fermentation to take place, punchdowns occurred 4 times per day for 5 days. 3 days post ferment maceration was followed by a soft press and further 18 months maturation in 2 New 300 litre Burgundy Hogshead barrels. Bottled with minimal filtration and no fining to maintain the wines fine structure.
