2018 Vintage Notes:
A warm dry vintage, which produced low yields. The quality of the Grenache fruit was excelllent, producing fruit which was concentrated, yet still retained it's vibrancy.
Production 1800 bottls.
The hand picked fruit was partially whole bunch pressed and undergoing fermentation. It was then transferred to 2nd and 3rd use French oak barrels. This ensured that the fruit shone through in the wine and the oak played a supporting role. It spent 12 months in oak, prior to blending and bottling.
