From vines with an average age of 65 years, planted on silty-clay soils, these grapes were picked by hand at perfect maturity during a descending moon into five kilo crates. Once at the winery they are whole-bunch pressed, with the juice flowing directly into casks with the lees and ferment with native yeasts. The wine is then aged for 26 months on the fine lees, 80% in used oak and 20% in tank, before being bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without added sulfites. This bright golden wine has aromas of ripe apple, hazelnuts and minerals with a saline lift.
