Hans’ non-interventional philosophy allows wines to undergo long, cool fermentation with wild yeasts; here old-world methods and experience go hand in hand with technology. No chemicals, additives or concentration. 100% natural winemaking.The red varieties are usually fermented according to a slow three week initial fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks followed by malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels where the young wine ages from 12 to 30 months depending on the variety and vintage.The white varieties are barrel fermented (or a portion of) in 500 litre puncheons, left on lees and matured in the same barrel for a period of anything between 6 and 12 months. To maintain the intensive flavours, there is no fining or filtration to preserve the complexity and structure that the wines have become famous for.
