The grapes were hand-picked in the cool of the early morning, sorted in the field, destemmed and lightly crushed within 20-30 minutes
of harvesting. Fermentation in small batch (900 and 1500L) open-top fermenters with hand-plunging , followed by a 12 day maceration
before the wine (mainly free-run with small amounts of light press wine ) was run to barrel for MLF. Elevage was carried out at
14-15 degrees using 30% medium toast new French oak for 12 months on a low sulphur regime. After four rackings the wine was bottled
without fining. The bottles were then cellar aged until release in August 2012 (Cellar door only) and finally at the October 2012 'Island of Wine Expo',
