Bottle size and vintage
This red, made primarily from Grenache and Syrah grapes, melds grapes from four different districts and consequently from different types of soil, which adds extra complexity to the wine overall. The grapes are harvested when ripe, completely destemmed and left to macerate for 15 days.
