It was a cool, wet growing season that replenished the water reserves. Harvesting started the first week of February and ended the last week of March 2021. This harvest had some challenges with covid-19 sale restrictions, lockdown, and some rain that made planning difficult. Overall the quality of the wines shows lots of promise.
The wine undergoes skin contact and fermentation in open fermenters, roto tanks, and fermentomatics. It spends 6 to 8 days on skins at 25°C. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is treated with oak.
