As purists we have always believed that to produce a wine of true character, it is essential that nature be the primary winemaker. Our farm is blessed with cool breezes during the hot summer months and stony, clay-rich soil, giving our wines their unique personality and style. A philosophy of minimal intervention and environmentally conscious farming methods are just some of our secret ingredients.

Three plots covering 2.5 hectares at 430 metres of altitude on south west facing slopes. The vines of an average age of 12-16 years are planted at a density of 6000 vines per hectare and trained in the traditional Cordon system.

10% whole bunch are hand-selected on sorting tables and fermented in stainless steel vats (maceration carbonique) at 22-28o C for 10 days on the skins. The rest is destemmed and fermented in open oak vats for 14 days.

After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 13.5% alcohol is matured for 16 months in 228l s French oak barrels with 30% new wood.

Food pairing

Pair with succulent slow roasted pork belly or braised game birds.
