VINEYARD
This wine is the result of a selection of white grapes that are sourced from the Vineyards of Lali, and the Apiary. Harvest – the harvest generally takes place near the beginning of October, on a flower day of the biodynamic calendar. The grapes are picked into small crates to avoid bruising, and brought to the winery.
PRODUCTION METHOD
the grapes are destemmed, and go skin and all into a large oak barrel for a 6 day maceration period, then lightly pressed and the must is delivered into French oak barrels that are placed on sleepers with wheels to accommodate a very soft, daily battonage, until fermentation is complete, at which time it is left to rest on the lees for the winter.
AGING
11 months in French oak
TOTAL PRODUCTION
