about the harvest: Grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness.

in the cellar : Grapes were vinified separately. The different varietals were matured separately in a combination of 3rd and 4th fill French-and American oak barrels for 12 months after which it was carefully blended (it took a couple of weeks to determine the perfect balance between the different identities of the different varietals!), stabilized and bottled.
