2017 was a challenging vintage. Disaster struck on the 20th April when there was a severe frost and we lost almost all our crop. We contemplated not making a wine at all but a chance conversation with our neighbour, whose vines were unaffected, led us to buying some of his Carignan grapes. Another neighbour, whose Grenache vines were partially frosted, offered us the remaining grapes from his vineyard. So thanks to the kindness of our neighbours, we made one wine in 2017. In fact, we liked the Carignan so much we now farm the vineyard!

Winemaking: The grapes were hand harvested on the 20th and 26th September into 15kg boxes. They were de-stemmed and crushed and fermented in small, open topped fermenters. Extraction was achieved by punching down twice a day in the early stages of fermentation and then macerating on skins until pressing on the 9th October. 15% of the wines was matured in three year old barriques for 12 months before blending and bottling in April 2019
