Cherry is handpicked at peak ripeness and delivered to the on-farm wet mill. At intake, workers visually handsort cherry to remove any damaged, underripe or overripe cherry. Cherry is placed in airtight bags and sealed to ferment for 68 to 72 hours. Bags are kept under shade to control fermentation.
It’s probably this extra fermentation in combination with the Sarchimor variety that makes the lactic flavor popping up to an unseen level.
