The 4th vintage of their signature wine, harvested at the end of September. Fermentation lasted only one week. A part of the stems dried in the sun were added back in a few days before pressing. The total skin-contact time was about two weeks.

After pressing the wine went into the same old barriques that were used previously with part of it going to a tank.
