Production Notes

All of the Petit Verdot was harvested by hand. Fermentation began slowly in 10 tonne lagares at around 21°C before gradually increasing to 24°C. After four days the grapes were pressed and transferred to stainless steel tanks to complete fermentation and undergo malolactic fermentation. The wine was then aged for 12 months: 35% in new and second use French (Saury) oak barrels, the remainder in stainless steel. The wine was bottled in August 2019.
