100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Hand harvested and destemmed to tanks with only minimal SO2 added
After about 4 days the indigenous yeast fermentation began, and the wine was pigeaged or pumped-over twice a day during this period, not exceeding 28ºC
Fermentation lasted 10-18 days, followed by 3 weeks extended maceration, after which the wine was drained and pressed to barrels
Matured for 20 in 500L French oak barrels of which 30% were new
