2020

The 2020 was a very high-quality vintage, virtually every pick, throughout the
entire region has been approximately 50 per cent down, with some varieties yield being down by 70 per cent. It really has caught all viticulturists by surprise as by appearance the crops look generally on par with most other seasons. The real difference is in bunch and berry size – they are considerably small. On the upside of that – tiny berries equal lots of intensity and flavour.
In sum, the 2020 fruit will make outstanding wines, but very little of them, making this vintage a very rare one.

Pre-fermentation cold-soaking for 5 days followed by a clean, warm (25-30 degrees C) ferment. The wine was fermented in closed vessels with twice daily pump-overs, using a specialized gentle tannin extraction method, also 2 x rack-returns during ferment. Total time on skins was 23 days to retain maximise fruit/tannin integration. Aged in seasoned French
barriques.
