Winemaking

Season perfectly slow and steady describes the 2021 vintage, effortless in the ripening period. Frustratingly the Grenache yield was very low due to a combination of heat and wind at flowering.
Winemaking tiny volumes of Grenache from our 2021 crush meant a 2-tonne bin was our vessel for ferment. Plunged gently throughout fermentation with around 20% whole bunch inclusion. Rested in seasoned French oak for malolactic fermentation and further time on lees.
Maturation 8 months in seasoned French oak puncheons (500L), 4 months on lees
ALC/VOL 14.5%
