Bunches are de stemmed to retain as many whole berries as possible. Parcels are separately vinified in open and upright fermenters over the course of a fortnight at temperatures below 25°C, while treated to a course of gentle pumpovers and plunging. Upon completion, some batches are held on skins for a term of optimal extractions. Components are pressed into a high proportion of new French oak barrels for twenty months maturation, periodically rack and returned for clarification before assemblage.
