The grapes were crushed and de-stemmed. Individual parcels were fermented separately in a range of fermenter sizes including 10 ton open fermenters and larger static fermenters. After fermentation, the wines were pressed off the skins and then selected parcels were racked into a combination of American and French oak barrels for 12 months maturation. A small portion of the wine matured in tank to bring lifted fruit to the final blend. Prior to blending, each parcel was reassessed to confirm its suitability and quality for Annie's Lane Shiraz.
