Winemaker Notes

The fruit was harvested during the cool of the night before being gently pressed to cold settle. The pressings were fermented in small format old barrels, with the free run undergoing the majority of fermentation in stainless steel before partial transfer to barrel to add spice and texture. The wine as then matured on lees prior to filtration and bottling.
