Winemaking Notes

The cooled grapes were transported to our cellar where they were hand sorted, destemmed and gently crushed. Regular pump overs and punch downs during the 3 week fermentation and maturation process assured soft tannin and colour extraction. Aged for 12 months in 15% new French Burgundian oak.

Growing Conditions

A cooler and wet winter gave the vines ample time to rest and build up reserves. Moderate temperatures also allowed the grapes to have a longer ripening period on the vine whilst producing wines that are fresh, lively and flavourful.
