Overview

The 2020 growing season started of being quite warm to start off with and then developed into a typical mild day and cool night pattern in the all-important last two months of the growing season
The grapes are picked in the cool of the night and transported to the winery where they are de-stemmed and crushed. Fermented in open-top vats and then pressed, the wine is allowed to settle for a day before being transferred to a mixture of new and old French oak barrels. The wine is then matured in the barrel for approximately 14 months prior to bottling.
