About The Harvest

Harvested early in the morning from four vineyard blocks over a 2 week period to obtain different characteristics.

In The Cellar

Grapes are de-stemmed, chilled and lightly pressed after a short period of skin contact. Racked and inoculated with yeast and then cold-fermented. Left on the fermentation lees (sur lie) for 3 months before bottling to add complexity.

Bottling Date: 8 June 2016
