Winemaking Notes: Grapes were manually harvested on August 29 (fruit day) and sorted in the vineyard. Once harvested, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed. Spontaneous fermentation occurred with indigenous yeast in three open-top 225-liter casks and one qvevri. Fermentation began on September 1st and ended on September 18th when the wine was de-vatted without pressing. During fermentation, the cap was punched down via pigeage so as to extract little-to-no tannin. Temperature was not controlled. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally. The wine was bottled on May 9th and left to mature until release. No additives are used in the winemaking.
