Winemaker Notes
At the winery, the grapes were whole cluster pressed and juice was cold settled for three days before racked off solids. The juice was then racked to barrel for fermentation. The fermentation was carried out at 14-16 degrees celsius, and took 14 days to complete. The barrel fermented wine was aged on lees for 8 months with extensive lees stirring. Malo-lactic fermentation was not performed.
