Time â€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„_Â¡ The lost element in todayâ€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„_s winemaking, can be so precious â€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„_Â¡ yet it is free. It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites
and took 9 years to reach a level of maturity which we felt comfortable to use for the maiden vintage (2001). The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts (true to our ancient custom) and left for 5 weeks on their skins. A slow 2 years of barrel maturation followed and a further 4 years of bottle maturation. Finally, we released this wine rich, classic and complex from age â€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„_Â¡ of vines and wine. This long wait, justified only by our passion, does bear fruit. Itâ€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„_s called-â€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã¢_The Work of Timeâ€°Ã›Â¡_Ã‡___Ã„___Ã„Ã±Ã”. Quite deep and concentrated on the nose, it opens up on the palate to reveal crisp cassis fruit with smoky edges and a hint of green pepper all hung on a ripe firm structure. Excellent balance.
