Vineyard info/Viticulture

Grapes were handpicked and only individually selected bunches were harvested at maximum -avour intensity. After both bunch and berry sorting on arrival at the winery, the grapes underwent a four-day pre-fermentation cold soak allowing for maximum fruit and colour extraction. Juices were fermented using a combination of indigenous (30%) and commercial (70%) yeast strains. Micro fermentations using a combination of whole bunch, whole berries and crushed berries was done — this is typically what we’ll do as it gives us a full palate of components and aromas to work with. Alcoholic fermentation lasted approximately six days after which it was pressed, settled and transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation.

Ageing

The wine was racked from barrel once over the nine-month maturation period, as preserving the freshness and fruit was key for the style we’re looking to produce.
