Vineyards: The grapes for this

his in his local village of Krov.

This forms the start of Jan’s

‘Pandamonium’ project which

comes from bought fruit as

opposed to estate-grown. All of

the fruit is always organically

grown and selected with great

care. In this case the vineyards

are on grey slate on the slopes

of the river, with fantastic linear

backbone of acidity.

Vinification: The grapes

are destemmed and then

fermented in steel initially

but the wine was moved to

a 1000L barrel after one day

on skins. Fermentation lasted

a couple of months to reach

dryness. Full malolcatic. Aged

for 12 months prior to bottling.

Unfined, unfiltered, zero added
