The grapes were hand harvested and gently destemmed and crushed into small open-top fermenters. Various yeasts are used to increase complexity. The fermenters were hand-punched 3 times daily. After fermentation the wine was pressed and put into premium American and French barrels and left to age for 20 months before blending, racking and bottling unfiltered.
