Other Our Grenache noir is grown as echalas vines (vine-to-post) on clay-shale rich soil with a high component of quartz rock. A high density planting resulting in very concentrated fruit in this mountainous vineyard site. By selecting the three major Grenache clones we have enhanced our natural complexity.

Complexity is build through multiple picking dates. Small batches of natural fermentation took place in open fermenters. A portion of whole bunches were included sometimes up to a 100%. Soft punch downs were performed. Some batches had extended maceration on the skins to add to the complexity. All of the components are basket pressed and aged for 7 months in seasoned French oak barrels. Each batch is carefully selected and blended to compliment the final product and aged for a further 2 months in barrel.
