|Blend||59% Chenin Blanc, 16% Sauvignon Blanc, 12% Harslevelu, 8% Chardonnay|
Farmed dry-land, thus not irrigated. All grapes used are from our vineyards. The Chenin vines are roughly 44 year old bush vines. The Viognier, Chardonnay, Hárslevelü and Sauvignon Blanc are also grown on varying degrees of decomposed granite but on opposite slopes of the valley, thus different ripening patterns can be observed and there is more to play with in the cellar. There is no specific recipe that we use; each vineyard block is treated according to its strengths and weaknesses. The grapes are hand-harvested into small 20kg lugs in the early morning, cooled overnight before the grapes are hand-sorted. Each component of the blend was kept separate during the wine-making process. After aging the wines for 5 months in old French oak barrels, wooden foudres and concrete tanks the final blend was made and bottled.
