Description

The fruit for this wine was grown on the lower terraces of Askerne Vineyard.

The fruit was handpicked then whole bunch pressed. After settling it was racked to barrel. 100% of the juice was barrel fermented. 20 % new French oak with the balance one to three years old. A mixture of wild and inoculated ferments. A considerable proportion of the barrels went through malolactic fermentation. It was in barrel for 9 months.
