Vinification method
 The red varieties Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache, are vinified separately in temperature
controlled tanks.
Syrah is being vinified in oak casks, whereas Mourvedre and Grenache in stainless steel tanks.
Maceration lasts from 12-25 days depending on the variety. After maceration is complete, the wine is
racked into oak barrels (75% French oak, 25% US oak) where malolactic fermentation takes place and
it matures for 10 months. All barrels are new and they are being replaced every four years.
Blending follows by adding a small amount of Roussanne.
