What Alex Mackay (our winemaker) did

The grapes were pressed using the traditional Burgundian method of pigeage (by foot). 12% of the bunches were left whole during the subsequent open top fermentation to add complexity to the wine. The wine was matured in French Alliers oak barrels for 9 months before being blended together and bottled.
