Winemaking Notes

The grapes were sourced from vines (all grown on their own roots) aged between twelve and thirty six years. The various vineyard parcels were harvested and open fermented separately to ensure that each parcel articulates the unique character of each vineyard site. All ferments were maintained on skins for a minimum of 8 days and then gently basked pressed, following which the free run and pressing fractions were combined.
During the subsequent e21 month barrel maturation in fine grained French oak barrels each individual batch of barrels was racked and returned periodically to seamlessly integrate the tannins into the structure of the wine. To preserve varietal and site purity, the wine is unfined, doesn’t have any tannin additions and is bottled unfiltered.

Growing Conditions

The 2018 / 19 growing season was one of extremes The vines had to endure some challenging conditions during budburst and flowering as well as warmer weather following veraison. Fortunately, February and March provided perfect ripening weather allowing the vines to comfortably cruise through to harvest Whilst yields were slightly lower, the concentration and vibrant flavour in the resulting fruit was definitely a highlight.
