|Big juicy liter of pinot noir and syrah from Romania. Clean, bright, abounding with berry fruit.
Grape varieties: pinot noir, syrah
Soils: Clay, loam, sand
Farming: Organic, hand-harvested estate fruit
Vinification: The Pinot Noir is treated much like the Sefu white – pressed hard to avoid solids, bad tannins and reduction, and then settled out for 24 hours. It’s then fermented in one 3000L stainless steel tank and six 500L oak barrels. The Syrah is whole bunch pressed into open vats, macerated for three days, and right as fermentation starts to kick off, it’s pressed and fermented in four 500L oak barrels and three 225L oak barrels.
Aging: in old barrel
