ageing : Drink now or mature for up to 10 years for further complexity.

in the vineyard : A low canopy allowed optimal sunlight penetration. Minimal irrigation was used. The fruit ripened slowly allowing the development of small bunches with highly concentrated flavours.

about the harvest: Grapes were picked at 24.5°B and whole-bunch pressed to 1.4 bars of pressure. The juice was left to settle for two days and racked to barrel. Using 100% wild yeast, fermentation occurred over at a three week period.

in the cellar : The wine spent 11 months on the lees. New and second fill, small French oak barrels were used.
