Technical Details

This wine is a blend of Grenache (66%), Mataro (21%) and Shiraz (3%) . Each of the individual blocks of fruit were de-stemmed separately into wooden and concrete open top fermenters where the must was lightly pumped over the skins twice daily for 6-7 days. The wine was then basket pressed and racked into older French Hogshead barrels where natural malolactic fermentation took place. The wine was left to rest on its lees for 24 months then bottled in June 2014 without fining or filtration.
