The 2015 vintage - also known as the goldilocks vintage because the weather was not too warm and not too cold, just perfect - will be remembered for smaller berries with more concentrated flavour.

in the vineyard : Terroir: The vineyards are situated in soils derived from granite and shale with excellent water holding capacity, ideal for dry farming.
Climate: The climate offers high day time temperatures that are cooled off at night by the summer sea breezes from the cold Atlantic Ocean.

about the harvest: 980Grapes were hand harvested in the first week of February.

in the cellar : 980Grapes were gently crushed and cold fermented at 16 ̊C in stainless steel. Extended contact with the gross lees stirred up periodically adds richness and mouth feel.
