||The preceding winter was wet and cold enough to ensure good and even budding. A hot August caused fast budding and an earlier season. The rest of the season was dry, windy and disease-free, with no heat-waves - very positive factors. Due to clamatic conditions, the harvest, that was large, lost moisture, enhancing concentration and eventually ensuring excellent quality. Analyses and flavours are promosing.
||The process was reductive, with cold fermentation (14 °C). After fermentation, the wine was left on the lees for three months to enhance complexity. For further complexity, the wine was blended with 10% Semillon.
