Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours.
Grapes were gently crushed and pressed. 100% barrel fermented and matured for 16 months in a new and a 2nd fill 300 litre French oak barrel. This wine was fermented with natural yeast to ensure that the uniqueness of our distinct terroir was revealed. Malo-lactic fermentation was not encouraged in order to protect the elegant varietal characters.
