IN THE VINEYARD
Stewardship with scrutiny and restraint... especially as individual blocks, single rows and even particular vines are selected, with consideration of the land, terroir, and clonal provenance. Harvest is by hand, in the coolness of early morning.
Care, both arduous and meticulous... selecting and sorting of individual clusters, rejecting anything short of perfection right down to each and every grape. Careful attention to the wine's progress as it develops its initial depth and elegance.
IN THE CELLAR
Curation of barrels and cooperage styles, composing the wine with artistry and flair, selecting final lots from only the best barrels, blending them for balance, harmony and the clones' expressive character both today and across the years.
