Production note

Vinification is simple and the focus is fruit expression and tannin balance. Old block parcels are tasted twice daily during maceration on skins to assess balance and the optimal time to press off skins. Post pressing, the wines spend 24 hours in stainless steel before going to barrel. Oak selection is critical and the coopers are selected on the basis of history with the vineyard and vintage conditions. Initially the selection is 100% new French hogsheads. Post malolactic fermentation, the wines are racked into tank and assessed for any required changes in barrel selection; both from a cooperage and age of barrel perspective. The wines are then matured in oak for 20 months until blending.
