Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre are gently crushed and vinified on skins for a week, pressed and treated to an extended maceration over the course of a month for optimal etraction of colour, flavour and tannin. Upon completion, batches are transferred to a selection of seasoned larger format 2500 litres foudre vats and French oak 500 litres puncheons for an extended term of sixteen months maturation.
