Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

The fruit was hand harvested from the upper slopes of the vineyard, with an elevation between 380 and 420 metres. The aspect is North, North West. The fruit was de stemmed into French oak cuves for natural fermentation with gentle hand plunging. Post ferment maceration was 20 days. It was then racked off into a mixture of seasoned and new (35%) French oak, and a mixture of puncheons and barriques, where it underwent malolactic fermentation and left to mature for about 17 months. It was then racked off lees and bottled, without filtering or fining. Clones: 75% 115, 20% Abel, 5% 777
