about the harvest: 

This is a fantastic vintage. Optimal ripeness was obtained in all four cultivars.

in the cellar : During winemaking the cultivars were kept apart and aged in third fill 300L French Oak barrels and in stainless steel tanks with staves. At 10 months the different components are blended after rigorous tasting sessions with our Old Man, Peter Pentz.
