From vines planted between 1995 and 2002, these vines are all unirrigated and planted in low potential soils. Soil types are predominantly Clovelly and Tukulu.
These individual varieties are aged and vinified separately before blending and bottling. The grapes are individually inoculated with a biodynamic yeast culture, and fermented on skins until dry. After malo-lactic conversion, the wine is transferred to barrels for ageing. After 20 months in barrel, the blend is carefully selected and bottled under inert conditions
