Vintages

  • Vintage 2013

    • 90% Cabernet Sauvignon
    • 10% Syrah

    The growing season was characterized by favourable weather conditions from bud break to the harvest of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah used to produce this Rosé.

    The absence of frosts and rain enabled us to obtain grapes in perfect condition. Temperate days and cool nights also enhanced the quality of the fruit and the early harvest resulted in the fresh notes which characterize this wine.

    The harvest took place from 25 March to 1 April in excellent weather conditions.
