In the cellar

The grapes were harvested at full phenolic ripeness, resulting in beautiful fruit expression and soft elegant tannin. The fermentation temperature peaked at 28°C with regular pump-overs to ensure even extraction and 15% of the wine was whole bunch fermented. The wine was matured for 14 months in 500l French oak barrels, with 25% new oak.

In the vineyard

The vines for this wine are planted on the South-Westerly facing slopes ranging in altitude from 230-250m above sea level on decomposed granite soils. The vines are trellised on a seven-wire hedge system and we yield approximately eight tons per hectare.
