Wine making Notes

To achieve the desired style, the grapes were strategically harvested to avoid any overripe, broad or jammy fruit flavours. The subsequent red ferments were then handled gently and allowed to remain on skins for up to 8 days to ensure optimum extraction of flavour and tannin. Following gentle pressing the free run and pressing fractions are combined. To promote and nurture varietal expression and complexity only well seasoned tight grained French oak was used during the maturation process. During this maturation period the wine was regularly racked to encourage the integration and mellowing of the boisterous youthful tannins.

Growing Conditions

The growing season had below average rainfall. Mean average temperatures were also consistently above average. A timely rainfall event in early Feb refreshed the vines and slowed sugar accumulation as they entered the final stages of ripening, resulting in vibrant varietal fruit flavours.
