about the harvest: 

2017 was the midway mark of the four year drought, producing a small grape crop. The vines responded with top quality juice with lower ph’s and higher acids. Good concentration and structure in the reds will see the wine develop well in the bottle and age magnificently.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were carefully selected over the sorting table. The grapes had cold maceration for 2 days in stainless steel and open tanks. The juice was pumped over and the cap punched down three to four times a day. The juice was left on the skins for 14 days after fermentation. Malolactic fermentation and ageing took place in 300L French Oak barrels, 35% new wood, 50% 2nd fill and 15% 3rd fill.
