Certified organic grapes were selectively harvested by hand at the beginning of April, with only the clean bunches being picked. The fruit was loaded into the press, then gently whole bunch pressed. The different batches were cold settled for 24 – 72 hours, then racked to barrels and puncheons, taking the fine lees. The juice was left to commence fermentation naturally.
