Description

"All the vineyards are cultivated using 100% organic practices without the use of any chemicals or pesticides and the soils are tilled manually. Additionally, all harvesting is done by hand and each varietal is vinified separately. The main goal at Murmurium is to maintain a style of rich, ripe and hand crafted wines through careful vineyard management, low yields and late harvesting. All the crops are 100% destemmed. Reds are vinified in small 50 hL cement tanks at low temperature to achieve a long maceration. For extraction Marc generally performs two gentle pump overs daily and additional manual punch down of the caps if necessary. The fermentations extend 3 to 4 weeks with a slow progressive increase in temperature in order to extract a very fine tannin structure. The malolactic fermentation and ageing take place partly in oak barrels but mostly in cements tanks. White wines are made from only a light pressing of first run juice and vinified in stainless steel tanks with strict temperature control to maintain a balance of ripe fruit and freshness." -Importer
