Day(s) of harvest    3/9/2023

Vinification process    Crafted from our 22-year-old southeast-facing organic Pinot Noir vineyard, nestled atop a rich basanite bedrock. Despite the challenges of a rainy season and unexpected hail, our dedicated efforts culminated in the harvest of healthy bunches on Sep 3. After destemming, we employed a 9-day maceration in 750-liter amphoras. The wine was then gracefully settled into 320-liter amphoras using gravity alone. Bottled on Jan 24, 2024, without the addition of sulphites, unfiltered and unfined, this Pinot Noir unapologetically showcases the vibrant fruity essence of its distinctive vintage.
