2021 was a terrific vintage for both vineyard quality and quantity. We had a wet spring followed by a healthy amount of sunshine and somewell-timed rain in January, leading to large green healthy canopies.The overall temperature during the growing season was lower than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural tannin structure.

Picked in one (very small) parcel, the fruit was chilled then 2% was destemmed in the base of an oak vat to commence a “Pied de Cuve” ferment. The vat was then filled to the brim with whole bunches and closed up to allow carbonic fermentation to occur. After fermentation had begun, daily delestage by gravity was performed for cap management. Occasional foot stomps were done to release a little more juice into the ferment and to extend the time on skins.  Pressed after two weeks to new and used 228L tight grain French barriques for eight months – 20% new, 80% older.  Bottled by gravity with no fining or filtration.
