Detailed Information

The hand picked fruit was crushed and destemmed with 12% portion of whole bunches added to the crushed must and fermented into open fermenters which were pumped over with gentle extraction the aim. Pressed after two weeks the wine was racked to 1-5 year old oak barrels with 38% new tight grained French oak.

After the malo-lactic fermentation in July, 50% of the wine was racked and sulphured  while the 50% was left on lees to age a further 12 months in oak, before final assessment and blending in mid July 2014. The wine didn’t require fining but was cross flow filtered and bottled in September 2014.
