THE HARVEST

The 2017 harvest had cooler conditions than 2016, contributing to longer ripening and fruit

development. The picking of the different varietals was also much more spread out, allowing

us to focus on quality and optimum ripeness.

IN THE CELLAR

The three varietals that make up the blend are each vinified separately as individual wines.

Stainless steel tank fermentation and reductive wine making are followed. These three

components are then blended in different ratios until we are satisfied that we have the final

blend that meets The Old Man’s approval.
