A combination of small and medium size static fermenters were used, with ‘wild’ yeasts present on the grape skins being allowed to initiate fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete the fermentation and parcels were then pressed and run to barrel with the result being a wine with excellent depth of color, richness and complexity. It was matured for 12 months in new American hogsheads & octaves (7%), new French hogsheads & barriques (3%). Balance in older octaves, hogsheads and barriques.
