Smooth ripening without any bursts of heat and cool autumn temperatures meant that the berries remained very firm and juicy.
Grapes were hand picked into 20kg cases in the 12th of October from the single estate of ‘Finca del Val’ situated at 950 meters from two one-hectare parcels of Syrah situated on ‘cantos’ or pudding stones. Grapes were stored at 1-2 degrees for 48 hours in a cool room before gentle crushing and cold soak for a further 6 days. The must was then warmed and fermentation commenced with punch downs and pigeage. Fermentation in cement then ageing for 12 months in 500 liter fine grained French oak barrels 2nd and 3rd use.

Ragout, game, cheeses, big steaks.
