The vineyards lie in deep red soils ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines.

The grapes were cold soaked for two days. After traditional skin fermentation, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged on French oak staves for 10 months.

The 2018 harvest was challenging being one of the driest seasons in recent times. The night temperatures were low overall with exceptionally cold weather conditions. The vineyards generally showed good and balanced growth without being excessive or too vigorous. In most cases the water supply was sufficient while the ripening period was cooler and drier than usual. The grapes reached good acidity and lower pH levels and managed to accumulate the sufficient sugar levels. The season was characterised by healthy, full-flavoured grapes.

Serve with boeuf bourguignon, chicken marsala, quesadillas and minestrone soup.
