Description

Vineyards
The dryland, trellised vineyards, situated 140m above sea level and facing south-east, were planted between 1958 and 1996.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested at 23° to 25° Balling in mid-February. The juice was fermented on the skins for five to seven days at 25°C. After malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in wood for eight months, using new, second- and third-fill French oak barrels.
