Winemaking

Season grenache was as happy as ever in the ripening season for 2022 as we avoided any issues at flowering. We were lucky to receive only a touch of hail which the vines stood up to well. The 2022 vintage was a long and pleasant ride!
Winemaking the old vine Grenache was hand harvested and upon arrival at the winery we added 18% whole bunch to the open fermenter then destemmed the remaining fruit on top. Carignan (11%) was co-fermented. Rested in seasoned French oak for malolactic fermentation and further time on lees.
Maturation 8 months in seasoned French oak puncheons
ALC/VOL 14.5%
