Settling overnight before racking into barrels. 60% is inoculated with cultured yeast while 40% undergoes spontaneous fermentation. 5% skin fermented Sémillon adds complexity and texture to the palate. The wine is matured for a total of nine months in 300 liter French oak barrels. 16% first fill, 16% second fill and balance in seasoned oak.
