Other Grapes are sourced from vineyards with varying soils comprising of shale,
schist, quartz and sandstone. This soil combination adds to the complexity
of our wine. The vines are cultivated in a sustainable manner and are
mostly bush vines or “sur echalas". This system supports the high density
bush vines against the strong prevailing winds. A small portion of Syrah is
grown as trellised vines, these vines are older and adds structure to the
final product.

This handcrafted wine is a blend of Grenache (27%) Syrah (25%) Carignan (24%), Mourvèdre (24%). Natural fermentation took place in open-top fermenters. Whole bunches up to 40% is used on all varieties during fermentation. All varieties are basket pressed into barrel & foudre. Maturation in French oak foudres and barrels for a further 10 months.
