Vinification

Late grape harvesting, hand-picked with a short period between the picking and fermentation – 2 hours maximum. Beginning of fermentation in large fermentation tanks with natural yeast picked out from the same grapes harvested during pre-harvesting (5 %). Maceration for 3- 4 weeks until the cap of grape skins sinks to the bottom of the tank and clears the wine naturally. Matured in French oak barriques for 18 months. Until it is bottled no sulphur is used.

Tasting and pairing

Warm spices waft over a base of brambly blackberries and provides a streak of minerality that cleans the palate and leaves the tongue twitching for more. It pairs outstandingly with a good cheese, but is very versatile for both dinner and lunch.
