The grapes are scrupulously field selected from the end of September through early October. The grapes from each vineyard are kept separate until the final blend is assembled prior to oak aging. In the Spring, once the malolactic fermentation is complete, the separate crus are assembled and the wine placed in small oak barrels where it remains until the following January. After bottling the wine is bottle aged in our temperature controlled cellars for at least another eight months before its release date. It has a ruby red colour with orange reflections. It’s bouquet is clean and intense, with complex hints of spices, licorice, vanilla and cherries. It is full, rich and persistent with a great, elegant tannin structure and finish.
