about the harvest: The grapes were hand-picked.

in the cellar : The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open bins with four punch downs a day. When totally dry, we pressed into oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. The wine matured for 14 months in small French oak barrels of which, roughly 30% were new. A small percentage of Shiraz was added to the blend. 2192 bottles were produced.
