Each single vineyard parcel was subdivided into smaller blocks and grapes were harvested once they achieved the desired ripeness. Each grape variety is fermented separately in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 15 - 20 days. The wine is transferred to oak barrels to complete the malolactic. The best parcels are selected to mature in new oak barrels and aged for 18 months.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and occasionally a small amount of Petit Verdot.
