About The Harvest
A hand-picked selection of the first ripest fruit, taken to the cellar
Yield: 6.8t/ha
A hand-picked selection of the first ripest fruit, taken to the cellar and cool soaked prior to fermentation, then taken to 2nd fill French oak barrels for 18 months.

Mourvèdre (earthy) with a splash of Grenache (fruity) here and a dash of Shiraz (spicy) there was blended by Ken to create this incredible wine.

The overriding requirement being that the blend of the “three halves” has to be greater than the sum of the parts.
