Yeast (Lalvin D254) was inoculated within 24 hours after crushing then fermented for 6 days on skins at an average temperature of 23˚C. Pressed at approximately 2˚balling. Acidity was adjusted using tartaric acid to correct pH, both prior to fermentation and during malolactic fermentation. Malolactic fermentation induced in barrel and completed within six months. 

The wine was barrel matured using French (fourth, fifth and older fill) 225 litre oak barrels for 32 months. After racking from barrel the wine was very lightly fined and again racked from tank to tank. No filtering of the wine was undertaken except at bottling when a 5-micron filtration was used.
