    Winemaking Notes

    A cool summer was followed by a late warm spell into October, allowing for extended hang time on the vines, ensuring the grapes reached peak physiological ripeness. Hand harvested between 26th October and 3rd November from Dijon and Spätburgunder still wine clones, the grapes were treated by the vineyard as a field blend.

    Small batch fermentations were undertaken with 10% whole bunch fruit, manual pigéage (punch downs) took place up to 3 times a day to gently maximise the extraction of colour, flavour, and structure. The wine was then transferred to barrel for 100% malolactic fermentation. 32% new French oak was used, as well as older barrels from French, Eastern European and American origins.

    Aged for 11 months in barrel, the wine was then blended and left to settle several weeks before bottling. The wine has no fining, and only a light filtration to retain the delicate nuances of the fruit and oak.
