About The Harvest

Although we had a dry winter, there was plenty of water when required in the hot summer months to get the vineyards to mature naturally without undue stress.

At harvest, perfect phenolic ripeness with lovely soft, ripe tannins was achieved. The berries came in at lovely low sugars due to cool conditions at harvest, awesome colour and great quality berries.

The grapes for this wine were selectively hand-picked in the morning.

In The Cellar

Reductively crushed and pressed with no additional skin contact in order to minimize phenol content, the juice was cold settled for 24 - 48 hours. The clear juice was then racked and inoculated with selected yeast strains to complement the diverse range of terrior parcels. Fermentation was controlled at 11 - 15°C and after 2 - 3 months maturation on lees, the different components were blended.
