VINIFICATION: Hand sorting of individual berries in small cases. Fermentation took place in 3300 litre open concrete fermenters, for about three weeks, followed by a maceration of three weeks. No additions were made to the fermenting wine. Pressing took place in a traditional basket press and the wine was transferred to the barrel for malolactic fermentation. 

GRAPES: Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache, Carignan & Cinsaut AGING: The wine spent 12 months on their lees in tight- grain French oak barrels, just 10% of them new. The wine was then racked into big oval casks for an additional year of maturation on the fine lees. After a total of two years, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

ANNUAL PRODUCTION: 795 Cases.
