Growing Conditions

Summer leading to 1999 vintage began with warm and dry weather conditions, offering ideal conditions for grapes to mature slowly. Temperature amplitude was a key factor, with a large difference between day and night records, developing well structured grapes in colour and aromatic complexity, ripe tannins and excellent sugar/acidity ratios.

Aging

French oak casks of neutral wood. Four casks of 2.200 litres.

Harvest

All grapes were harvested manually and selected at the vineyard itself, transported in small 20kg cases to the winery and immediately crushed.

Bottling

Blended and bottled by October 2002.
