about the harvest: All the grapes from the individual cultivars were harvested optimally ripe during the end of January through to mid - March.

in the cellar : We try to reflect the individuality of each cultivar during processing and use predominantly free run for the varietal wines and the blend. All components were matured for approximately 15 months with 40 – 60% new French oak.
