- All of our wine selections are fermented spontaneously.
- Each variety is harvested and fermented separately in a combination of stainless steel, concrete, and large oak tanks. Fermentation is done whole cluster for 12-15 days using only indigenous yeasts. Each variety is pressed separately and transferred to oak barrels (60%) and stainless-steel tanks (40%) for aging. For maturation: 40% in used large oak tanks, 20% in 500L Austrian & French oak barrels, and 40% in stainless-steel tanks. Each variety is matured separately for 13-15 months before the blend is established. After blending, the wine is transferred back to oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks for an additional 7-9 months of aging. In total, the wine is matured 20-24 months before going to bottle. The wines are only released when the Domaine feels they are ready, which is normally 4-6 years from the date of harvest. The current release is 2013.
