in the vineyard : The different components of this blend were sourced from our vineyards on Hidden /Soil: Oakleaf and Tukulu

about the harvest: The grapes of both varieties were picked at optimum ripeness, between 25° - 26° B.

in the cellar : The grapes were bunch - and berry-sorted and then crushed to stainless steel fermentors. The wine was pressed just before dryness, and only after malolactic fermentation the individual components were racked to 225L french oak barrels and left to mature for 16 - 18 months. Only 20% new oak were used. Finally the wine was blended. No finings were necessary and filtration was done at bottling.
