Production

Vine density - 4,500 vines per hectare

This block is well balanced and has yet to reach its full potential.


A well balanced red wine vintage. The grapes reached optimum ripeness with ease.


The best quality grapes were selected and picked at optimum tannin ripeness, gently crushed and fermented in small open top fermenters. The wine matured for 18 months in small, third-fill French and American oak barrels.


Alcohol: 14.32%

Total Acidity: 5.9 g/l

Residual Sugar: 2.9 g/l

pH: 3.55


Medium-bodied wine with layers of chocolate, plum and mulberry. Full and elegant, with a long conclusion.
