About The Harvest

We have identified blocks that can achieve greatness. These blocks have been nurtured and selectively handpicked at optimum ripeness to provide the base from which to sculpt a great wine.

In The Cellar

In the cellar the focus was on texture and the development of secondary aromas to complement the primary fruit. Through a 2 year rearing process in mostly new French oak barrels, split between Mercier and Berthomieu, a seductive complex wine was created, which satisfied our requirements for “World Class” status. After bottling, the wine is matured in our cellar for over 2 years to allow further secondary aroma development.

Additional Information
