The wines are made from grapes grown exclusively in the Napanook vineyard, giving them a specific identity. They are estate-bottled in the spirit of the Bordeaux châteaux. To express the unique terroir, the classic Bordeaux grape varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are planted with different rootstocks that are best suited for the varying soil composition of gravel, heavy clay and loam.
The property is dry-farmed to allow natural stress and good concentration of fruit. This minimal intervention allows the terroir to fully express itself in the wine. The grape clusters are crop-thinned to allow sun and air to pass in between, helping to achieve full maturation and soften the tannins. Only 20% to 40% new French oak barrels are used in order to limit the extraction of oak notes.
