Wim has changed the “recipe” for this wine based on his experience from last year.
Wim was in the difficult position last year that his Carignan did not ripen sufficiently before he needed to pick it. However it turned out that the juice was quite interesting and combined well with the Merlot and Shiraz that he used to create the blend.
This year he decided to make the wine entirely from the Carignan which, once again, he picked before it had reached full ripeness. The Carignan vines grow in soil that is an interesting mix of gneiss, granite and shale.
