The musts are inoculated and batches are treated to a course of ten days plunging and pumpover, extracting optimal flavours, colour and tannin. Components are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new oak barrels for completion of ferments and fifteen months maturation, before assembling into the finished wine.

The medium bodied, savoury palate shows generous red fruit flavours, plum and blackberries beautifully supported by fine grained tannin, the chocolateyness of it's dashing oak complexity. A sophisticated wine of refinement, subtlety and great length.
