Mostly Grenache, the secret to it's allure, with about a third of Shiraz, harvested off the finest vineyards.

After twenty four hours on skins, batches are gently pressed, clarifiedand inoculated with yeasts which have been isolated for their capacity to enhance fruit characters. Juices are cool fermented until almost dry, leaving very little resisdual sugar. Components are then stabilised, clarified and assembled into the finished wine. Alcohol 12.5%
