VINTAGE

Vintage 2017 was generally cool and harvests were around two weeks later than average in most areas, allowing a good ripening period to produce fruit of high quality and well-balanced flavour and acid.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked in late February in warm, dry conditions. It was chilled then whole-bunch pressed and fermented partly in older oak and partly in stainless steel temperature-controlled tank. The wine was matured for six months, partly in tank and partly in older small-format French oak.
