Each vineyard is harvested and vinified separately to insure maximum complexity. All our fruit is hand-picked in the early morning and handled reductively to preserve the integrity of the fruit. After destemming a period of skin contact is allowed according to chemical analysis and phenolic, flavour ripeness. A light pressing is followed by 3days of cold settling to clarify the juice.
Each vineyard is inoculated with a selected yeast to match it’s flavour profile. Fermentation lasts for 21-30days at 13°C. 3 Months of full lees contact is allowed post fermentation to add richness and texture to the wine. The component are then blended and stabilised prior to bottling.
