Winemaker's Notes

Vinification: A natural wine making process using only four ingredients: grapes, yeast, sulphur dioxide and fresh egg-white. Grapes are destemmed into open fermenters; inoculated with yeast cells immediately; left on skins for 6 days; racked to oak barrels where malolactic fermentation starts and completes naturally.

Tasting Notes: Oak maturation in 20% new French, 10% new American and 70% used barriques for 18 months, punctuated by oxidative racking every 3 months. At the end of which the wines were fined with fresh egg-white leaving only stable constituents and a wine that will age well for 7-10 years.
