A fancy new harvester means a better quality pick in 2017. More intense than 2016 and closer in style to the 2015 release, this is a looking lovely. Picked at night then warmed up over 2 days for a wild ferment in tank. Fermented to dry in about 7 days. Left for 128 days with no plunging or interference, the wine is protected from oxygen with a layer of Co2. The wine is then racked on a moon day, with no pressing from the skins, lightly filtered and bottled.
Although not designed to age we have seen similar examples form the Loire that have aged beautifully for up to 6-8 years.
