All fruit was hand harvested; grapes were picked across various ripeness levels in an effort to increase complexity of flavour. At the winery, fruit was gently crushed, with minimal skin contact allowed to ensure a light blush colour. Fermentation took place in stainless steel at between 12 and 16°C, followed by an extended ageing on the yeast lees.
