The soils are predominantly red to brown loam over weathering slate or siltstone, the well drained qualities contribute to naturally consistent low cropping levels and fruit of great integrity. Grapes are picked in seperate blocks, crushed and treated to vinification in a collection of open slate vats over the course of a fortnight.

Upon completion, batches are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for eighteen months matuation. Alcohol 14.0%
