Grapes are hand-picked. Fermentations last about 3 weeks in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks, with frequent pumping-overs and addition of yeasts. Wines are afterward transferred to oak barrels, of which 25% are new, for 14-18 months aging. They are fined and filtered prior to bottling. No press wine is added into the grand vin.
"Best ever from this estate. Fabulous aromas of blackberries and ripe currants. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. An excellent wine."
