Vinification details

Grapes were crushed and destalked before 18 days’ fermentation, with both grapes and juice handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. It was left on lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine was then de-alcoholised with gently spun cone technology, performed under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure it retains body, colour and flavour.
