Winemaking

This was a warm growing season with the fruit ripening with good flavour intensity in early February. Flavour development was steady, the good canopy architecture allowed us to achieve and sustain the long ripening period required to reach the elevated sugar levels needed for this style. The fruit was harvested in mid-April and started fermentation in stainless steel before finishing its fermentation in barrel. The wine was lees stirred fortnightly during maturation in new and old oak to help build richness and complexity into the palate.
