Single vineyard located outside of Landsborough, Southern Pyrenees. Vineyard was planted in 2000 to Nebbiolo. The region is renowned for longer and warmer ripening periods during autumn compared to other cool climate regions which present ideal conditions for Mediterranean varieties. 
Rich red ferrous clay base soil, quartz and ironstone throughout.
Hand harvested, de-stemmed and transferred into open 1 tonne fermentation pots. Juice was inoculated with a suitable yeast culture, the cap was hand plunged twice daily, with a total maceration time (on skins) of 180+ days.
In 300 and 500 Litre French Oak Barrels, 10% new (in order not to over oak the delicate Nebbiolo aromas) for a period of 22 months.
