The wine is a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache Noir. The 25 year old grapes produce an average yield of 20 hl/ha which is fairly low. The hand-picked grapes are destemmed then fermented separately in stainless steel vats for 3 weeks at 25°C and aged separately in oak barrels for 9 months. The Syrah is aged in 228 litres french oak barrels while the Grenache is aged in demi-muids of 400 litres. The wine is bottled without filtration. - Importer Note
