Cellar Grapes were kept on the skin for cold maceration for at least 3 days. This also allows some natural fermentation to take place. The juice is then inoculated with a homemade brew of yeasts including three different commercial strains.

It is fermented in open stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 24° - 28° C and kept on its skins for 4 - 7 days with regular pump overs and punch downs. After fermentation, the free run juice is drained and the skins are gently pressed. It finishes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks.

This wine will complement food such as a rack of lamb with a mint dressing or even a thickly cut fillet of beef.

Harvest Grapes are picked at optimum ripeness of 23° - 25° Balling.
