A selection of our best, estate grown, red grapes were used for this wine. Soils are a combination of decomposed granite and shale. Average annual rainfall is approximately 650mm.In order to optimize the influence of terroir the vineyards were managed according to organic principles (certified organic according to EU and US legislation).
All the grapes were hand-picked. The Cabernet was de-stemmed and the Syrah, Mourvedre and Touriga Nacional were partially de-stemmed. Fermentation took place in open-topped tanks. Maturation occurred in French oak barrels (30% new) for 18 months. The individual components were fermented separately and then blended after 6 months.
