Parcels are treated to a week of cold soak and three or four weeks wild indigenous yeast ferment on skins, a portion is included as whole bunches. Upon completion, batches are passed through an old fashioned basket press into an extravagantly high proportion of new hogsheads and barriques, for malolactic and a year's maturation.
