A GSM blend (50% Grenache/39% Shriaz/ 11% Mourvedre) with a Southern Rhone style.
Grapes are hand harvested and cooled overnight in a cold room. Natural fermentation is in open concrete vats (a small proportion is with whole cluster grapes), punched down on a daily basis for two weeks.
After basket pressing the wine spends 12 months in 500lt French oak barrels that are 2-5 years old – no new oak is used.
