The Shay’s Flat vineyard sits at an altitude of 350m in the Western Pyrenees Ranges and is organically farmed. 

Vintage

The 2013 vintage was beautiful in the Pyrenees with some rain, good bud burst and plenty of warm sunshine and cool evenings during the growing season which allowed for an even maturation of the grapes.

Soil

A mixture of deep red soil, schist, quartz and clay

 Harvesting

The grapes are harvested at night, at optimal maturity while avoiding overipeness.

Vinification

Grapes are destemmed and fermented in concrete or stainless steel tanks. A long maceration (from 3 to 5 weeks) and a gentle work on the marc allow

the extraction of fine and elegant tannins.

Maturing

The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. A small proportion of the wine is aged in concrete tanks to preserve the freshness of the flavours.

Tasting 

Colour: dark red

Nose: complex nose of black fruits (cherry, blackberry) with hints of tobacco (havana cigar).

Palate: aromas of black fruits and liquorice with supple and delicate tannins.
