More info

Certified organic since the 2011 vintage, the vines are grown on a hillside vineyard which benefits from more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Grown in chalky and clay soils, the vines are over 40 years old and produce an average yield of 30 hectolitres per hectare. Debudding takes place in May and a green harvest in July in order to concentrate the flavours in the berries. The grapes are hand-harvested in two tranches in September, when they have reached the optimal maturity and ripeness levels, from the best plots of the vineyard.

The grapes were carefully selected to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified. The wines were traditionally fermented with selected yeasts. The Syrah component of the blend was aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels, of which 50 % were new barrels and 25% were second fill. The Grenache was aged in stainless steel tanks, to retain the fruity flavours.
