The grapes are from an old bush vine vineyard, which yielded a mere four tons per hectare of tiny berries. Judging that the fruit quality warranted it, we went for 100% new oak, and did malolactic fermentation in the barrel to get optimal integration. The wine in bottle undeniably bears the stamp of new oak, but it is cloaked in thick layers of velvety fruit.
Ageing Potential
We expect the fruit to be a little closed-down until 2003, and would drink it until at least 2007
