In the cellar: Shiraz was harvested in the third and fourth week of Feb 2018. Most of the grapes were destalked and fermented in tanks with French oak staves, with malolactic and maturation being completed on staves. Approximately 20% of the wine was fermented in small open fermenters and hand-punched before being pressed off into small French and American oak barrels of varying ages.
