Nerd stuff: Grapes are fermented with natural yeast, half in stainless steel at 58°F, and half in older 300 liter barrels. 15% of grapes were whole bunch fermented and spent 4 weeks on the skins. The wine ages for 12 months on the gross lees, after which it is blended and bottled without fining or filtering. Grapes are farmed organically with minimal intervention.
