Only the best vineyards have been selected: 5 blocks of Sauvignon and 1 of Sémillon. All are pruned and managed to produce not only the best expression of their terroir but outstanding flavour intensity. The woods are horizontally
tied down and the vines deleafed. The vineyards have been organically cultivated since 2005.
The grapes are mechanically picked early in the morning to maintain the cold temperature to avoid oxidation. once crushed, the grapes are pressed and remains on solid for a period of 72h before racking into barrel for fermentation. The wine remains on lees for 9 months, stirred once a week, then blended and bottled.
Pale yellow colour, the wine has a complex nose of yellow fruit and exotic aromas with some integrated smoky oak character. The wine is extremely mineral but balanced, yellow fruit, white peach, jackfruit with subtle hints of oak. Long lingering flavours.
