  • First harvest takes place in late September, with the grapes being left to dry naturally for 1 month, followed by a second harvest of very ripe grapes in the first half of October
  • The two harvests are left to ferment and macerate separately
  • The wine is then blended and aged in barrique for 14 months prior to bottling
  • 1,000 cases produced annually
