The fruit is sourced from carefully selected vineyards in the Pays d’Oc. The Pays d’Oc area has a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry summers and mild winters, with the majority of rainfall occurring during the spring and autumn. Dry, continental winds from the north west bring cooling influences to the vineyards, which help to reduce disease pressure. This wind is interspersed with warm winds from the south, which bring moisture to the vines. Each vineyard site has its own terroir characteristics which add subtle complexity to the resulting wine.
Known as Cot in Bordeaux, the Malbec grapes were cool fermented in concrete tanks with the vinification temperatures carefully monitored. Traditional maceration lasted 15 days. 10% of the wine was aged with oak for added complexity.
