Winemaker Notes

The rigorous quality sorting process that began in the vineyards is continued at the cellar, to make sure that no green berries are vinified. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for approximately two weeks, with regular pump-overs performed during this time to extract ripe, round tannins and intense colour. Minimal intervention is key to the making of this wine, with the winemaker applying as few as possible processes in order to preserve its dense flavour and mouthfeel. To this end the wine undergoes only a light filtration, and a restrained oak regime is followed. It involves ageing in a combination of 30% new oak and older barrels for 15-16 months, and then further bottle maturation follows until the wine is ready for release.
