Viticulture + Vinification
A blend of classic red varietals selected from unique diverse terroirs of old vines which have
received no irrigation and only rely on natural rainfall, therefore producing small concentrated berries with intense fruit flavours and soft tannins.
These wines are made naturally with minimal intervention to allow the wines to reflect an authenticity and sense of place.
Hand harvested into small baskets early morning followed by whole bunch natural fermentation in small open top fermenters, this method of fermentation allows the wines to reflect more freshness, fruity and floral aromas. Gentle pressing into barrels for further ageing before release.
