Combination of alluvial, well drained and aerated soils as well as decomposed granite soils from mountain foothills.
Grapes were hand harvested, de-stemmed and slightly crushed before pressing and given brief skin contact. Free run juice settled in the tanks overnight. The following morning the clear settled juice of the individual block selections (some kept separate and some blended) were racked from their lees and inoculated with selected yeast strains. Fermentation was temperature controlled. Maturation occurred on the fine lees for another three months to give extra body and elegance. The wine is not oaked.
