The grapes were harvested in mid-February at a minimum of 25° balling. They were picked early in the morning when it's still cool, softly crushed and de-stemmed, and given two hours of skin contact to extract fruity flavours from the grape. Only free-run juice was used for this wine, which was left overnight in a stainless steel tank to settle. Clear juice was used for fermentation, which occurred in stainless steel tanks, allowing all the primary flavours to infuse well with the wine. The wine was aged on the lees for three months in stainless steel tanks to achieve a beautiful creamy character, with only 20% of the final volume aged in second-fill French barrels and the remainder in tanks.
