Vinification The vineyard is composed of a sand-clay soil. Very low yield (20hl/ha) ensure the highest concentration of aromas, enhanced by sundrying the grapes after harvest on lrge mats for 10 days. The juice is fermented in stainless steel with extended lees contact. Fermentation is then stopped by addition of pure grape spirit from Corinthian Currants. The wine is barrel decanted to separate sediments and aged 5 years in new French oak barrels.
Taste Profile A noble successor to the 1997 this vintage has produced a rounder and fruitier, in certain respects a more welcoming wine.
