The Saint Emilion Grand Cru wines are made from specific limited quantity parcels based in the coverted ‘côtes’ section of Saint Emilion in the heart of the Cru Classés. They are designed to express the individual terroirs of this great area. The wines hailing from Napa Valley represent different expressions of region and come from the top ‘vineyard designated’ blocks. These are from both valley floor and from the mountains in limited quantities.
Classic Saint Emilion wines made from multi parcels located throughout the Saint Emilion Grand Cru appellation which are then blended in way that represents individual Chateau styles. The Reserves are classic and good value wines blended to combine many of the disparate terroirs that make up the Napa Valley. All made with sense of power and elegance.
Our fruit is nurtured and grown in some of the most well respected vineyards that hold the highest quality terroir in Napa Valley, ranging from the cooler mountains slopes of Pritchard Hill to the Lake Carneros to the red clay soils of the valley floor.
"The grapes are hand-picked and sorted (allowing the removal of all damaged or sunburnt grapes while at the same time respecting the quality of the fruit) and transferred as whole bunches into a pneumatic press. The juice is chilled to preserve the fresh-fruit flavours, before being vinified at under 14°C in a continuation of that policy. Oak is used sparingly so as to not overwhelm the fresh, mineral and fruit vibrancy."
Chardonnay is the Queen of Napa. This wine emanates from the Becksoffer vineyards situated around Pablo Bay just north of San Francisco. The fog breezes that come up from the bay make for a cooler climate. This, coupled with vinification of hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes at a low temperature, brings traditional Napa Chardonnay into the modern era.
