The grapes for this blend originate from prime vineyard sites that have been planted with new clones material. Most of the sites face southwest and do receive supplementary irrigation resulting in optimal ripeness, superbly concentrated flavours and ripe, supple tannins. A clay sub-soil retains essential moisture and the gravelly, granite derived topsoil allows for effective drainage.
We aimed for soft tannins and ripe dark fruits and used Rhone style varieties to achieve this. 4th and 5th fill French 500L barrels were used to mature this wine and to add to the complexity.
