From rocky, marginal land, svelte 2015 shares 2014’s dark spice richness, fine red-berry fruit & full body, but merits higher rating for superbly balanced, supple structure.
A good year for yield and quality. Especially in respect of early to midseason cultivars. The nights were cool and the days were not extremely hot, which allowed the grapes to achieve full physiological ripeness.
The grapes were hand-picked during the morning. No berry sorting took place and no crusher was used in order to get whole berries in the fermentation vessel. Pump-overs started once the cap lifted every 4 hours five times a day with a gentle punch down thereafter. Total maceration was for 16 days. Only 650L/Ton were pressed out after which the wines did the malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels
