in the vineyard : 

A certain amount of sorting and selection took place in the vineyards leaving sun-burnt berries on the vines. 

in the cellar : 

Once de-stemmed, the berries underwent a second sorting, which further removed excess stems, raisin berries and leaves, before proceeding to whole-berry fermentation in a wooden vat. A soft tannin structure was achieved through regular pump-overs and punch-downs. The total maturation of the skins were 15 days and once malo-lactic fermentation was completed the wine further matured in 225 litre French oak barrels for 14 consecutive months. This wine was bottled May 2015.

Maturation: French oak barrels – 14 months
