Technical Notes

Grapes were harvested early mornings by hand before being sorted and destemmed at the cellar. Whole berries were cold soaked for 3 days before the cooling was turned off and inoculation began. Tanks fermented for 12 days at 23 – 27 degrees Celsius in stainless steel fermentation tanks. During the fermentation process, pump overs were done twice a day to ensure delicate tannins and colour extraction. After fermentation the tanks were lightly pressed. 40% of the final blend was matured with staves for 4 months before it was blended for bottling.
