Vinification

Harvest takes place at the end of November. Highly ripe and flavourful grapes are picked by hand in small crates. The grapes are crushed lightly the juice is left to clear through natural sedimentation followed by fermentation in small oak barrels. After fermentation, the wine continues to mature in small barrels for 12 months and then for 6 months in bottle before market release.
