Grape Varieties: 

60% Grenache
40% Syrah

Terroir: 

Grenaches and Syrah came from terroir mainly composed of clay. Those parcels, around the estate, have the deepest soils. As a result, the vines reached their optimal water conditions, ensuring lower degrees, beautiful pale hues and great aromatic freshness.

Winemaking: 

The harvest - slightly later than in 2018 - began on August 29th. The grapes were harvested at night and very early in the morning to preserve their aromatic richness. The limpid musts, obtained by direct pressing followed by cold settling for 48 hours, were then fermented at low temperature (12-14°C).
Bottled in December 2019.
