Vinification: Half of this wine came from 2019 vintage which was fermented in an open top fermenter then aged in oak barrels for 2 years. The other half came from the 2021 vintage which was fermented in stainless. A relatively small dosage.

Vintage Conditions: 2019 and 2021 were both exceptional vintages resulting in strong varietal characters, perfect vintages for a NV blend.
