Viticulture & WinemakingThe grapes are hand picked in small 12kg trays and taken to the winery. The grapes were sorted on selection tables to remove any poor quality grapes. The berries were cold macerated at less than 5°C for approximately 7 days. The juice/berries were returned to a temperature of 15°C, selected yeasts added and maintained at 30°C for around 2 weeks. The wine was then pumped over four times per day to optimise the extraction process. After the fermentation the wine was racked into French oak barrels to start the malolactic fermentation under controlled conditions for approximately 2 months. Ageing was completed in the barrels for 10 months and a further 5 months in bottle. The wine underwent a gentle filtration before bottling. 
Oak Treatment: 100% of the wine spent a total of 12 months in French oak barrels.
