In the Vineyard:The grapes were selected from trellised vineyards in the Worcester region. The grapes were hand harvested and after crushing allowed to cold soak prior to inoculation with selected dry yeast.
In the cellar:The grapes were fermented over 10 days at 26 –28°C in stainless steel tanks using the ‘pump over’ system. The free run was racked off and the press wine was handled separately. After malolactic fermentation the wine was blended stabilized and filtered.
