VITICULTURE
? the growing season began with unsettled weather during flowering resulting in lower yields
? followed by a very warm and dry summer that provided ideal growing and ripening conditions
? a successful harvest period, with grapes being picked at optimal ripeness and flavour profile
ANALYSIS: Vintage: 2019 | Alcohol: 13% | pH: 3.23 | T/A: 6g/l | R.S: 3.7g/l

WINEMAKING
? carefully hand-harvested, the grapes were gently whole-bunch pressed
? the resulting juice was fermented in both new and old French oak barriques
? the majority of barrels were fermented with specially chosen yeasts; while a small proportion were left to undergo ?wild? fermentation
? weekly batonage - or lees stirring - promoted yeast autolysis which added both body and complexity
? malolactic fermentation naturally occurred once the weather warmed in the spring
? only the best barrels made the final blend, before filtering and bottling without fining
