Production note

Grapes were carefully hand selected. Bunches were gently de-stemmed, and cold macerated for 48 hours before being inoculated with selected yeast. Fermentation takes places in a small stainless steel open top fermenter for 7 - 10 days. During fermentation the skins cap is pushed by hand three times a day. There was post-fermentation maceration on skins for 14 days before pressing. The wine was aged for 12 months in French (100%) oak barrels.
