Barrel fermented without inoculation in 3rd use, 500L French oak. This wine is built on two picks, one early to preserve the acidity. The wine was aged on its lees for 16 months, the final five in stainless steel barrels. The result is savory orchard fruit punctuated with beeswax and fresh baking bread.
