Traditional viticultural practices are applied, vines are hand pruned and often hand picked. Grapes from each vineyard are kept separate throughout the wine making process until assemblage. Vinified on skins in open fermenters at controlled temperatures between 22C and 28C for several days. After traditional pressing, the wine is transferred to American and French oak hogsheads. A malolactic culture is added early to induce secondary fermentation whilst in barrel. The wine is racked after settling and minimal sulphur is added, a critical factor for natural flavour development. Matured eighteen months prior to racking and the final assemblage.

A palate of soft fine tannins and fresh red berry characters. The mouthfeel shows excellent textures, approachable and satisfying in its youth.
