The vertical trellised vines were planted between 12 and 22 years ago on undulating hills of decomposed granite and weathered sandstone. Where the clay subsoils are too structured and porous, supplementary irrigation is used to ensure optimal foliage and even ripening. These vineyards are planted up to 80 km from the coast, with geographical influence from mountains and the cold Atlantic coast. Complexity is achieved by blending these different regional wines.

Grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness, de-stemmed and crushed to stainless-steel tanks. The use of cultured and natural yeast helps to unlock the fragrant fruit profile of the grapes. After fermentation, 20% of the wine was matured in French-oak barrels for 8 to 10 months; the remainder matured in stainless-steel tanks with French-oak staves to complement the wine’s flavour profile and length
