Vinification

Only grapes from the best vineyard blocks are used for this special wine. Each varietal is harvested and matured separately for 15 months in 300 liter French oak barrels (30% first fill, 15% third fill, 30% fourth fill and 25% in older barrels). Barrels are tasted, the best selected and the final blend is aged for a further 3 months.
