Hand harvested and hand sorted in the vineyard, picking took place on the 30th March and 07th April. In the winery, the fruit was pressed over five hours to high pressure to extract phenolics. Left overnight at ambient temperatures, 30% was run to neutral barrels with the remainder in tank on full solids. Ferment commenced naturally after four days, allowing significant oxidation of the juice. Ferment was completed after six weeks at warm temperatures, and remained in barrel, on gross lees and un-sulphured until February 2017. The wine was blended and filtered prior to bottling in March 2017.
