Vinification Notes

The grapes were hand harvested. Prior to maceration, a small portion of the juice was bled off the skins to increase skin to juice ratio. The must was crushed and fermented at temperatures of 20-30ºC in stainless steel tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Very gentle, periodic pumping over was carried out, with seven days total maceration and natural stabilization. There was minimal oak ageing with French oak inner staves, in an effort to keep fruit fresh, lively and prominent, with a further month`s ageing in bottle.
