Winemaking Notes: “Perfectly healthy, destemmed grapes allowed for a long cold soak to extract the superb flavours and bene- ficial antioxidants of the skins. Allowing the temperature to rise, the must naturally progress through a long wild natural fermentation for a true expression of terroir and place. After some time on post macera- tion, the young wine was gently pressed and transferred into partly new French Barriques for a natural second malolactic fermentation. The minimal oxygen exchange over a 24 months of maturation in the same barrels made all the difference. The wine and wood had time to marry together to form a richer, more complex and textured wine, able to age for many years in the bottle. For you to enjoy this stately flagship wine at its full potential, we bottle-aged this vintage in perfect condition for 8 years. This is drinking like one of the best “Grand Cru” Pomerol but without the heavy price tag that normally would come with it. No fining. No filtration. Natural greatness.” – Hans Herzog
