Twelve hours skin contact after de-stemming, pressed straight to concrete for native yeast fermentation and six months aging.
A delicate salmon hue, lifted berry fruit, with a hint of thyme and spice. Delicate floral and citrus notes dance on the palate. Texturally lush and glossy, with a fresh and lively finish.
