Grapes were harvested by hand before de-stemming to stainless-steel tanks. Fermentation took up to two weeks. Free run wine was racked to barrel for malolactic fermentation and maturation in 90% French and 10% American oak 300L barrels (half first fill, half second fill), for 16 months. The wines were made individually to address each varietal’s need for undivided attention and to ensure that the varietals’ unique characteristics and site expression were completely developed before blending. Selective tasting from the barrels determined the composition of the blend. The expert blending of this Rhône-style blend has ensured harmony between the three varietals and the ultimate balance between fruit, palate volume, oak extract and tannin.
