Vinification
vinification
100% hand harvest into small baskets with thorough sorting of the grapes. The Syrah is harvested twice in order to obtain optimum ripeness, followed by Grenache and then Mourvèdre. For this special cuvée, the grapes, of first choice, are vinified with the stems left on in a cone-shaped oak vat. Apart from manual pigeage, very little intervention takes place during vinification. The wne then ages 12 to 16 months in vats.
