Various traditions describe the Holy Grail as a cup, dish, or stone with miraculous healing powers, The Holy Grail became interwoven with the legend of the Holy Chalice , the Last Supper cup. By analogy, any elusive object or goal of great significance may be perceived as a holy grail by those seeking it. Rare stamps, for stamp collectors, are considered to be the holy grail of stamp collecting.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were fermented, using natural yeasts from the vineyard, in open stainless steel tanks at 28-30°C. Skin contact 14 days. The skins were pushed down 4 – 8 times during peak fermentation. Malolactic fermentation took place in the barrel where the wine had minimal handling. Use is made of traditional gravity flow and no mechanical pumps are used. The wines were racked 3 times over a 24-month period. There was no filtration and the sulphur levels were kept to a minimum.
Aged in 30% new French oak barrels
26 months in 225 litre barrels
