How the wine is made

Fermentation is completed traditionally in concrete tanks that allows the wine to have exposure to outside air which allows the yeast to work best.
5-6 month malo-lactic fermentation with added yeast.
The parcel is harvested at 13 degrees potential abv and sorted carefully before pressing occurs.
This wine is best drunk between 5-6 years.
