A blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache the wine is made in a southern Rhone style. All varieties are grown on the farm and are hand picked into fermentation vessels of either concrete or stainless steel. The ferments are allowed to proceed naturally and are hand plunged as required until they are dry.
Once the ferment is finished the vessels are allowed to undergo post ferment maceration on the skins. This usually lasts around 8 weeks. They are tasted often and when they are ready, pressed off into 500L French oak barrels. The wine spends around 24 months in oak, of which 20% is new.
