The Story

Vintage 2008: Average winter rains were followed by a very cool and dry late January/ February, resulting in very healthy vines with big canopies and intensely varietal fruit which held their acidity extraordinarily well.
Winemaking:Grapes were picked early at just on 11° Beaumé, gently pressed and then taken through a slow, cool ferment. A very small amount of free run went straight to barrel (older oak) for a barrel ferment to add complexity.

...Standout wine in disappointing class: clean, lively, well-made, straightforward savvy
