Our Garnacha grapes were hand harvested on the 14th September, with selection taking place both in the vineyard and again later on a selection table in the winery. A pre-fermentation cold soak took place in large format French oak vessels until fermentation began spontaneously, this taking eight days to complete. The wine remained in the vat for another two weeks following which it was racked to barrels of 400 and 500 litres and where it remained for 14 months.
