The grapes were destemmed and transferred into 100% new French 300 litre oak barrels. Maceration lasted for three to four weeks with manual pigeages; fermentation and malolactic conversion took place with carefully selected yeasts. The barrels were then emptied and the contents pressed, before the young wine was returned to the barrel to complete fermentation. The cooper closed the barrel at the estate and the wine matured for 12 months in the barrel.

Winery

The Syrah vines are grown in the High Agly Valley, where the vineyard is situated at 325 metres. At this elevation the vines benefit from the coastal breezes sweeping up from the Mediterranean Sea, which help to temper the scorching summer heat. The mountainous foothills of the Pyrenees provide good diurnal temperature differences, with cooler evenings offering the vines gentle respite from the heat, resulting in balanced fruit with natural freshness. The soils are made up of a mosaic of schist soils, which date back to the Cretaceous period. The schistous marl produces shallow black soils, forcing vines to put down deep roots in search of water and nutrients. The vineyard is certified organic, no herbicides or chemicals are used. Yields are kept extremely low at 12 hl/ha, to ensure good concentration. Hand-harvested.
