AWARDS
2006 Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur's Awards - Bronze
in the vineyard : The grapes were harvested from 11 - 23 year old south- and east-facing vineyards, situated on decomposed granite and loamy soils, 220m above sea level.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested between 28th January and 10th February 2005.

in the cellar : The grapes received 6 - 12 hours skin contact before being gently pressed in a “pneumatic” tank press. After inoculation the juice was fermented in 40% new, and 60% second-fill barrels (mostly Nevers and Alliers with a percentage of American Oak barrels to add a spicy character). The wine spent 8 months “sur lie” with occasional “batonage” to accentuate the leesy character. 40% tank-fermented Sauvignon Blanc was added to the blend.
