ageing : The wine will reach its full potential in the next 3 to 4 years.

in the vineyard : The grapes for this wine were selected from two distinctly different vineyards – one on a sunny, north-facing hill, chosen for the prominent varietal aromas of the grapes, and the other on a cool, south-facing slope, chosen for the sound structure the grapes would impart to the wine.

about the harvest: Grapes from the two vineyards were harvested by hand during March at between 25° and 26° Balling and the batches vinified seperately.
