About The Harvest

The grapes were handpicked.

In The Cellar

The grapes were sorted by berry to source only the best coloured and sized fruit before fermentation. Fermentation was done in open top oak fermenters for an extended period of 27 days and barreled down to 100% new French oak barrels for 26 months. Barrel selection was done to pick the perfect blend for this wine.
