Vineyard info/Viticulture

After being harvested and destalked the grapes were left on the skin for a few hours. The wine was then cold-fermented in a reductive style in stainless steel tanks, with a specially selected yeast. The latter was based on the location of the vineyard and the ­avours of the fruit prior to the harvest. After the completion of fermentation the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks and battonaged fortnightly until a month before bottling.
