The 2020 vintage produced another year of great health fruit. Cooler wetter winter helped vines rest but the summer was dry resulting in tiny berries, high natural acid levels and great fruit purity. No rot! Very expressive wine with a lovely balanced palate.
Early picking to preserve freshness, and balance in the wine. Our new press produced gave us very clean juice and I think it has had a very positive effect on this vintage. A very slow and cool fermentation separately with different yeast strains for more complexity and then blended after fermentation.
Average of 6 months on gross lees in tank.
3 – 5 years.
