Winemaking Notes

The wine was made with minimal intervention to preserve fruit purity. Fermentation occurred in static fermenters (potter) and open fermenters allowing for gentle extraction of flavours and texture through pumping over and hand plunging four times daily. The ferments lasted between 7-10 days. The skins were then pressed and wine allowed to settle before being transferred to barrel.
